Kyaiktiyo Pagoda is a well-known Buddhist pilgrimage site in Mon State, Burma. It is a small pagoda built on the top
of a granite boulder covered with gold leaves pasted on by devotees. It is located in Mon State, eastern Myanmar. It stands on a glided boulder
precariously perched on the edge of a sloppy cliff. In Mon language, Kyakihtiyo means “the pagoda carried on the hermit’s head”. With its magical
powers, the boulder itself was said to be floating miraculously up in the air, carrying the tiny pagoda with of holy Buddha relics in it. Over many
centuries, it has descended bit by bit, and it is now intact with the cliff. Today this miracle golden rock is still rocking back and forth when pushed,
and it has survived many earthquakes and storms for over 2400 years.
