National Geographic's Traveler magazine listed Myanmar as 1 of the top 50 destinations of a life time for every tourist. It is a "must see". The country's official name was changed to 'Myanmar' since 1989. Capital of Myanmar is now 'Nay Pyi Taw'. Ancient capital cities of Myanmar had many interesting names: Suvanabhumi (Golden Land), Amarapura (land of no death), Yadanabon (land of gems), etc. The earliest prehistoric primates known today is called Pondaung Man , who resided in Pondaung , northern Myanmar about 40 million years ago. Because of that, some call Myanmar, the land of human origin. Brick ruins from a number of Pyu city-states in central Myanmar were from 4,000 BC, somewhat contemporary with Babylonia and Mesopotamia, earliest civilizations of the world. Aside from many city-states, there were 3 wholly-united Myanmar Empires http://www.myanmartraveltours.com

It is located in the Mon State, eastern Myanmar. It stands on a gilded boulder precariously perched on the edge of a sloppy cliff. In Mon language, Kyaikhtiyo means 'the pagoda carried on the hermit's head'. With its magical powers, the boulder itself was said to be floating miraculously up in the air, carrying the tiny pagoda with of holy Buddha relics in it. Over many centuries, it has descended bit by bit, and it is now intact with the cliff. Today, this miracle golden rock is still rocking back and forth when pushed, and it has survived many earthquakes and storms for over 2400 years. Regarding the scientific specification of the golden rock, the rock on which the pagoda lies is a granite stone. The volume is about 244 cubic meters. The density is about 2.5 ton per cubic meter, which calculates the total weight to about 611 Tons, and 10 meters in height. Whatever it is, a 600-ton boulder standing on 1 square meter base, on this weather exposed rocky peak, is still a living miracle! You should go there if you ever wanted to witness a miracle.
