Taktsang Monastery

Mr. Manoj Sharma from TWX visited Bhutan and captured the photograph of Taktsang Monastery.

Perched on a cliff-top, Bhutan's Taktsang monastery, also known as the Tiger's Nest, is one of the most breathtaking temples in the world. The Buddhist place of worship is built on a rock around 3,000m (10,000ft) above sea level. The main temple complex was built in 1692 and is considered to be one of the holiest for the Bhutanese people. There are no proper roads and visitors have to trek for hours to reach the temple. The hike to the legendary Tiger's Nest Monastery, located on a cliff-top high in the Himalayas of Bhutan is a lifetime experience.
