Kyauk Tan Ye-Le Pagoda

About 7 miles southeast of Thanlyin, there is Kyauk Tan. The floating pagoda is adrift on the river and one of the highlights is people feeding the gigantic catfish appearing and emerging from the water at the edge of the pagoda platform (steps). Take one of the ferries boat from the riverbank.
Two things are noticed, the water level never rises to cover the pagoda, and there will always be enough room for everyone who come to visit the pagoda (meaning, even the pagoda has small room for visitors somehow it is always balanced out between those who is coming & leaving).
