via the Express, 09 January 2022: I have misgivings about reposting this article as there is no “news” in this story. Also, archaeologists are not so much interested in the precarious position of the rock as much as the (ancient) cultural significance of the temple and its landscape.
The Kyaiktiyo Pagoda, also known as the Golden Rock, is a well-known Buddhist pilgrimage site in Mon State, Myanmar. It sits on top of the Kyaiktiyo hill (also known as Kelasa hills or Eastern Yoma mountains), and is on the Paung-laung ridge of the Eastern Yoma mountains. Shrouded in clouds, its origins and story offer visitors and pilgrims a tantalising taste of mystery and mythology.
