This tour takes you to one of the most sacred Buddhist religious sites in the world: The Golden Rock Pagoda. The Pagoda is located on top of Mt. Kyaiktiyo at 3615 feet above sea level. It was built more than 2500 years ago. Legend has it that the Pagoda was built on a Hair Relic that was given to a hermit by Buddha Himself.
It is widely believed that the power of the Hair Relic, which is enshrined in the Pagoda, holds the Golden Rock in it’s precarious position for many centuries despite several earthquakes. The Golden Rock Pagoda is recognized as one of the wonders of South East Asia by recent publications from Tourism Authorities in ASEAN Countries. Tripadvisor.com rated it as one of the most “awe-inspiring places around the world” – http://www.tripadvisor.com/InfoCenter-a_ctr.amazingplaces
On your way back to Yangon you will stop at the Ancient Royal Capital of Bago as well as the World War 2 Allied War Cemetery.
