The Kyaikne mid-water pagoda festival will be held at the Thanbyuzayat Township of Mon State on 6 and 7 November, stated the organizing committee of the festival.
The two-day long festival will be held according to the rules and regulations, and the round trip to the pagoda and the Wekalaung beach one mile and six furlongs away from the pagoda will be arranged for pilgrims. A notice was issued to pilgrims to visit the pagoda in a disciplined manner.
A notification has been issued that drunken persons, the elderly, pregnant women and children are not allowed to visit the pagoda, that those who travel by powered schooners must wear a life jacket, that it is mandatory to follow the rules established by the organizing committee of the festival and make sure there is no disaster.
Those who want to visit the Pagoda in their own plan need to make an advanced notice to the respective village-tract administration and the board of trustees of the pagoda. It is reported that they must visit the pagoda as the organization arranges and that any unrecognized vehicles are not allowed at the beach.
All rules and regulations will be announced on vinyl posters and by loudspeakers by the board of trustees and the organizing committee of the pagoda.
The Kyaikne mid-water pagoda festival is an annual pagoda festival which is held between the first and third waning days of Tazaungmone. Due to unexpected high tide conditions on 21 November 2021, tens of thousands of pilgrims drowned in the incident. Thus, the board of trustees and the organizing committee have issued a notification to ensure safety this year. — TWA/GNLM
