Paung Laung River.

The Hlay Khwin Taung Pagoda and the banks of the Paung Laung River in Zeyathiri Township in Nay Pyi Taw Union Territory were thronged with people celebrating the Thadingyut festival.
With the decrease in COVID-19 cases, restaurants along the river and pagodas in the township have reopened under the COVID-19 rules and regulations. The Hlay Khwin Taung Pagoda is believed to be the mightiest pagoda in the township, and as the river bank is also very calm, pilgrims come and rest on the riverbank after their prayers at the pagoda. The riverbank is the busiest place with people from various regions not only during the Thadingyut festival but also during the water festival, a resident stated.
It is reported that the Township Fire Brigade and the Village Administration Committee worked together to patrol the river in speedboats to prevent visitors from drowning in the water.—U Aye Lin Tun-Zeyathiri Township (IPRD)/GNLM
