Saif Carmel, Capel yr Annibynnwyr, mewn cwm diarffordd ger Porth Tywyn. Cyn 1826 addolai'r aelodau yng Nghapel Jerusualem ym Mhorth Tywyn ond yn sgl rhwyg ymhlith yr aelodau fe sefydlwyd Capel Carmel yn 1828. Helaethwyd y capel yn ystod y flwyddyn ganlynol. Ailadeilawyd y capel yn 1882 ac fe'i helaethwyd eto yn 1929. Saif y fynwent ar oleddf serth ac o ganlyniad bu raid codi walydd ar ochrau'r beddau er sicrhau eu bod mhw'n gorwedd yn wastad. Rhed llwybr hirbell Sant Illtyd heibio i'r capel.

Carmel Independent Chapel is located in a secluded valley near Burry Port. Prior to 1826 members worshipped at Jerusalem Chapel in Burry Port but as a result of a schism many members left and in 1828 they built Carmel Chapel. The chapel was enlarged a year later. In 1882 the chapel was totally rebuilt and enlarged again in 1929. The graveyard is located on a steep slope and therefore the sides of the graves have to be built up to ensure that they are level. The long distance St Illtyd Walk passes alongside the chapel
