The hanging monastry.


Well, it looks like the monastery is just hanging on to the rocks at the edge of a cliff.

This monastery is in Bhutan, a neighbor of India. This monastery is called 'Tiger's Nest Monastery'
due to a legendary belief that the Guru Rinpoche flew there on the back of a tiger.

The monastery is said to house seven temples in it. It can be accessed only by foot or on a mule. But will the mule climb the 10,200 feet?

This Taktshang monastery is the most sacred for Buddhists all over the world. I am scared certainly to look at its location. May be that is why it is not for ordinary people like me and only for Buddhist monks.

I had an encounter with three Buddhist monks several years ago. But I don't remember anything out of it.
