Its surface is plaited with over 30 tons of gold, brought since hundreds of years by millions of pilgrims. It dates back 2500 years. According to the legend, it was built by two merchant brothers that have received eight hairs of Buddha. With the help of a number of heavenly creatures and the king they discovered the hill where in a small chamber the relics of other Buddhas have been enshrined. They added the new hairs and covered the chamber with a golden slab.
