The World List of Tangibles of Tourist Attraction

Locally known at the Kyaiktiyo Pagoda, the Golden Rock is an important Buddhist pilgrimage site. Located 130 miles southeast of Yangon, the Golden Rock literally hovers on the edge of a cliff looking like it could tip over at any second! The 600 ton rock has a small golden pagoda sitting on top of it and there are many legends surrounding it. One states that if a person hikes from the base of the hill to the rock three times in one year, the person will be blessed with wealth.
