Kyaiktiyo Pagoda, Golden Rock, Burma

Kyaiktiyo Pagoda also known as Golden Rock, sits on top of a granite boulder covered with gold leaves pasted on by devotees. The magnificent Golden Rock balances on the edge of a cliff at the top of Kyaikto Mountain. Believers claim that it was placed at the cliff's edge by two nats (Burmese guardian spirits) 2500 years ago on top of a hair of Buddha. The nats used a boat to search for the best location on which to keep this sacred hair. Having found a location on top of the tallest mountain around, the Nats placed a large boulder on top of the hair to keep it safe. It is this hair of Buddha what maintains the boulder balanced and prevents it from falling. The golden pagoda is 5.5m (18ft) tall sits on top of the rock. Kyaiktiyo has become a popular tourist attraction place of Pagodas in Burma.
