Kyauktan Ye Le Pagoda (Burmese: ကျောက်တန်းရေလယ်ဘုရား [tɕaʊʔtáɰ̃ jèlɛ̀ pʰəjá], formally Kyaikhmawwun Yele Pagoda (ကျိုက်မှော်ဝန်းရေလယ်စေတီတော်) is a Buddhist pagoda located in Kyauktan Township, Yangon Region, on a small island in Hmaw Wun Creek, a tributary of Yangon River. The pagoda was built with many Buddha's relics inside.

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).

It is approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) south of Yangon. This unusual temple was built under King Bawgasena in the third century BCE. The temple hosts an impressive collection of paintings, sculptures and other fine demonstrations of Burmese Buddhist artwork and craftsmanship.

  • Worth a quick visit as part of seeing the Kyauk Tan Pagoda. Nothing materially stood out as different from this pagoda but might as well visit it while in the area.

  • Good Pagoda for half day trip from Yangon. The pagoda is located in the middle of river and you can travel by local small boat. Enjoy feeding fishes and local market nearby.
  • This Pagoda is in the center of backwaters. Boat services are available to go there. The street shoppers force you to buy things for the temple. The roads are very worst when you travel from Yangon to here. It takes almost two hours from Yangon. No life jackets are provided during boat trip.
