A word for pagoda or Buddhist holy site in the Mon language (equivalent to paya in Burmese), used in the names of some pagodas in Lower Burma, where Mon kingdoms ruled before the mid-18th century. They include Kyaiktiyo in Mon State and Kyaik Pun in Pegu (Bago). Though less commonly used today than their Burmese (Myanmar) language names, Kyaik Dagon/Kyaik Lagun is the Mon name of the Shwe Dagon Pagoda, Kyaik Athok that of the Sule Pagoda, and Kyaik Mawdaw that of the Shwemawdaw.
