KKM YL sskm

The Buddha Pujaniya Festival of the Kyaikkhami Mid-water Pagoda will be held in Kyaikkhami of Thanbyuzayat Township, Mon State, and there will be no sports competitions and funfairs this year, according to the Kyaikkhami Mid-water Pagoda Board of Trustees.
The festival will be celebrated on the coming 8 October (14th waxing of Thadingyut) and will last until 14 October (5th waning of Thadingyut).
Only the Pathana reciting ceremony and the Thadingyut Lighting Festival (Abhidhamma Day) will be held in this year’s festival.
The pagoda festival will be observed under COVID-19 health rules published by the Ministry of Health. Buddhist devotees will set adrift alms-pots into the water which can only be executed at the dawn of Thadingyut full moon day as well.
Due to rising caseloads of domestic infections of COVID-19 in early July 2021, the Kyaikkhami Mid-year Pagoda was closed temporarily and was open to the public again on 14 August. — TWA/GNLM
