Tiger's Nest

    Paro, Bhutan.

    Taktsang or ‘Tiger’s Nest’ Monastery near Paro. Completed in 1692, the temple hangs on a cliff at 3,120 metres (10,200 feet), some 700 metres (2,300 feet) above the bottom of Paro valley. The place is highly sacred to the Bhutanese in that they believe Guru Rinpoche, the father of Bhutanese Buddhism landed here on the back of tigress.
