Myanmar: Kyaiktiyo Pagoda

On Thursday I got a postcard from Myanmar.

It shows the Kyaiktiyo Pagoda. The Kyaiktiyo Pagoda or Golden Rock is a small pagoda built on the top of a granite boulder covered with gold leaves. According to the legend the rock is precariously perched on a strand of Buddha's hair. It is one of the holiest sites in Myanmar and a popular pilgrimage site and tourist destination.
