A super cultural image which begs the question: What makes it sacred?

@Michael Skorulski: Sorry, I don't know. But the zigzag shaped paper, Shide, is the sign of purification.

I am sure curious why sacred. Old and has stories to tell? Did something special happen on that rock? I like the friendly green moss and things growing on it. It's a nice big boulder.

The rope indicates its sacred state. Otherwise it's just huge rock.
