Kyaikkami (Yele) Pagoda
Located not far from Thanbyuzayat, Kyaikkami (or Yele) sits atop a flat offshore rock and is joined to the mainland by a covered causeway. Several Buddha relics are said to be enshrined at Yele. Legend says that 4 Buddhas were sailed on wooden rafts across the ocean by their creator, a gifted Sinhalese sculptor, one of which came to rest at Kyaikkami. Today, it is said, the 21 Mandalay style Buddhas now resting at Yele sit on the spot where the original image is buried. Kyaikkami is the site of an annual festival offering fish, attended by thousands of pilgrims.
