Kyaikitiyo Pagoda

Kyaikitiyo Pagoda is, along with Bagan and the Shwedagon, one of country’s most wondrous sites. A small stupa is perched on the top of the gargantuan ‘Golden Rock’, a huge boulder covered in gold leaf which a balances precariously on the edge of a cliff at the top of Mt Kyaikto. At dawn, as pilgrims light incense and fires around its base, the huge golden dome shimmers in the early morning light, catching the first rays of sunshine.
