'Tiger's Nest'

Paro, Bhutan.

 

The famous Taktshang (Tiger’s Nest) monastery on the face of a sheer 1,000 meter cliff is about 10 km outside Paro. 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 a tigress.
