Kinpun-Golden Rock

If we told you that millions of people make a pilgrimage to see a precariously placed rock, would you believe us?  The “Golden Rock” is one of Myanmar’s most revered sights, but to those that don’t share the faith it is what it is: a gold covered rock.  The gold comes from pilgrims that stick gold leaf on it.  The pilgrimages are due to legend and folklore that this rock was brought from the sea to it’s current resting place.  No matter what you believe, it’s quite a spectacle.
