Kyaiktiyo Stupa in Southern Myanmar is one of the most important Buddhist pilgrimage places in the country. A huge rock is positioned at the edge of a cliff, on top of a mountain, gilded and crowned with a spire. It is believed to maintain its unstable equilibrium with the help of a strategically placed single hair of Lord Buddha. © Istock/anutr tosirikul
