Tour to the Golden Rock pagoda
Kyaikhtiyo pagoda, widely-known as the Golden Rock pagoda, is one of the most veneered Buddhist pilgrimage sites. 7 m high, the pagoda is built on the top of a granite boulder and covered with tiny gold leaves pasted by thousands of pilgrims over the years. The boulder seems to defy the gravity. According to the local beliefs, the tiny thread can be put between the boulder and the rock proving that no material was used to keep the boulder on it. Legend also says that a precious relic – a Buddha’s hair – is enshrined in the pagoda keeping it from falling. Journey to Myanmar could not be complete without visiting the Golden Rock!
