Legend say that the boulder maintains its precarius balance due to a precisely placed Buddha hair inside the pagoda. Once there was a King who received the Buddha's hair in the 11th century from a hermit.

The passage way to Kyaikhtiyo

The hermit instructed the King to search for a boulder whose shape resembled the hermit's head. Then they enshrined the hair in the pagoda and placed on top of the boulder. The King was said to have supernatural power due to his father who was a Zawgyi, an alchemist, and his mother, a Naga, dragon princess.
