This pagoda and rock are nigh-unbelievable: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyaiktiyo_Pagoda I am amazed that, despite all the traffic and building, the rock has not moved.

could be it has secretly been bonded at some point

These are amazing. AO always has great articles. The “near me” filter is a good tool to find some interesting things nearby.

An almost sculptural rock in this category that I think about is Mexican Hat Rock in Utah. It is shaped in such a way that it looks like strong wind would have eventually blown it off balance.
