Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda is located in Mon State. It is about 20kms from the town Kyaikhto. It is a 7.3 meters pagoda on top of a big "Golden Rock". The massive golden boulder is right on top of the Kyaikhto mountain. Legend say that the boulder maintains its precarius balance due to a precisely placed Buddha hair inside the pagoda. Once there was a King who received the Buddha's hair in the 11th century from a hermit.

It lies 24km south of Kyaikkami and 16km southwest of Thanbyuzayut, Mon State. It is a very wide, brown-sand beach that tends toward tidal flats when the shallow surf-line recedes at low tide. The beach is lined by waving casuarinas trees.
The name of the town is taken from a not-too-long rest house roofed with galvanized iron standing near the marketplace. A war memorial here holds the graves of 3,770 British, Australian, Dutch and Gurkha prisoners-of-war who died while constructing the infamous "death railway" under supervision of Japanese forces during the Second World War.
