Visit Golden Rock

Visit Golden Rock

The Golden Rock has an important role in local Buddhist community as one of the most sacred places in Myanmar. The image of golden rock comes from a giant stone balanced on a cliff and Burmese people do believe this miracle happened thanks to the story that a hair of the Buddha is shrined in the Golden Rock pagoda. 
Every year, the rock was magically added a thicker layer of real gold as local people stick more gold squares on it.
