This construction that looks like it is re-defying gravity is a monastery in Bhutan hanging 3,120 metres on a cliff!! The place is called Taktshang or Tiger’s Nest monastery and it is situated in the middle of the Bhutanese mountains, several hours outside of Paro.
It was built during the end of the 17th Century on the spot where saint Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche) meditated. Legend has it that he flew to this place on the back of a tiger and hence the name Tiger’s Nest.
To reach the monastery we’d have to trek through steep zigzag trails of pine forests. This is a place where the Earth is literally holding upon its shoulders an unbelievable construction of man which serves to glorify the heaven above and the earth below.
