Sunday Photo Story – Kyaiktiyo Pagoda

It is believed that touching the Golden Rock at Kyaiktiyo Pagoda will fulfill all your wishes. Located on Mount Kyaiktiyo in Myanmar, on the edge of a cliff (like Taktsang Monastery in Paro, Bhutan) the Golden Rock defies gravity and the legend has it that the rock is preciecely balanced by Lord Buddha’s hair. A trip to the Golden Rock can be completed as a day trip from Yangon.
