Underwood & Underwood :: Kyaitteyo Pagoda, miraculously balanced by a hair of Buddha, on Kelasa hills, near Kyaikto in Mon State, Burma (Myanmar), ca. 1900.
Stereoscopic pair of photographs [50 (9059)] from a collection of 36 stereoscopic views of Burma, one of a series of “stereoscopic tours” of foreign countries published as part of the Underwood Travel Library. This is a general view of the “Golden Rock” pagoda, a stupa built on top of a massive boulder resting precariously on a hillside 20 km (12 miles) away from Kyaikto. | src British Library
