The Golden Rock (Burma)

Kyaiktiyo Pagoda, also known as Golden Rock, is a famous Buddhist pilgrimage site in Mon State, Burma. A small pagoda (5.5 m – 18 ft) sits on top of the “golden rock,” a granite boulder covered with gold leaves pasted on by devotees.

The rock itself is precariously perched and seems to defy gravity as it perpetually appears to be on the verge of rolling down the hill.
