Yay Lall Pagoda

      Yay Lall Paya at Kyauk Tan means the pagoda in mid-stream built on a laterite reef. It was built by King Zeyasana the seventh king of the Pada Dynasty in the third century BC. The first pagoda was only 11 feet high. The pagoda complex comprises several buildings including a monastery. Pilgrims and visitors are ferried across to the pagoda. One can feed shoals of long river catfish which surface to snatch tit-bits of food thrown at them.
