Burma’s Golden Rock, Perfect Example of Balancing Act in Nature

This rock has not much more usual than every other rock. It is just special by its placement, it seems that it is example of perfect balancing act found in nature. It can be found in Burma at the Moun Kyaiktiyo.


Local people are known to give sacral value to anything unusual so it was similar with this rock. They have melted the gold (despite the fact that majority of people in Burma are very poor) and covered whole rock with it and gave it name Golden Rock. They even declared it third most sacred place in Burma.

On the top of the rock they built a little pagoda which is also covered with pure gold. This nice example of balance in nature really looks astonishing. The rock looks like it could fell every moment but in fact it is pretty stable .
