Retainers of Golden Rock

On the routes to Kyaikhtiyo, we see several rocks wearing a small pagoda as if patterning after it. When one of our party found such a rock, sitting on the share vehicle remodeled from a truck driving up and down the road, she cried "I see a fake of Golden Rock there!" But it is a little pity to call them "fake". Rather I would like to treat them as "retainers" of Kyaikhtiyo.
