The Golden Rock

Kyaiktiyo Pagoda aka the Golden Rock is one of those places which is always over your expectations.  It definitely has some magic on it. Its cultural factor and spirituality are very strong. You go there thinking about it is just a golden rock but then you realize that is way more than this. The rock itself and the stupa perched on it really do look like they should fall off the cliff to the valley below, but somehow they balance, even as faithful add more gold leaf to the base of the rock. It is all quite magical.  As the sun sets and the lights go on, the rock glistens. Morning’s light is softened by the smoke of incense burning, becoming ethereal with the sounds of prayers and occasional gong of a bell. (Author – Alyonka Feriabova)
