With the rising number of COVID-19 cases, the Kyaikkhami Yayle (mid-water) pagoda was temporarily closed to visitors, according to the announcement of the Pagoda Board of Trustees on 4 July.
“The Kyaikkhami Yayle pagoda was closed starting from 4 July because of COVID-19. The number of COVID-19 is reported mostly in Thanbyuzayat township as well as in Kyaikkhami town. There are three hundred cases of COVID-19 in Thanbyuzayat and nearly one hundred in Kyaikkhami. As a result, Kyaikkhami Yayle pagoda was closed temporarily. The pagoda board of trustees will announce the reopening date of the pagoda,” said a member of Kyaikkhami Yeyle pagoda board of trustees.

Located 9 kilometres northeast of Thanbyuzayat, Kyaikkhami was a small coastal resort and missionary centre known as Amherst during the British era. The main focus of Kyaikkhami is Yayle Pagoda. Other attractions here are the colonial administrative buildings that are nearly 100 years old. — Aye Maung/GNLM
