Golden Rock


The rather rigorous trip to this unique pilgrimage site is always satisfied with a fabulous sight of a huge rock weighing 600 tons, insecurely balanced at the edge of a crag of Paung Laung Mountain Chain, around 200 km Southeast of Yangon.

On top of the boulder is a delicate pagoda, enshrined with a single strand of hair relic of Buddha, which is said to be the prime force maintains the balance of this huge boulder.
