My Journey To The Tiger’s Lair

In Bhutan, high in the Himalayan Mountains, the jaw-dropping Taktsang Palphug Buddhist Monastery, was built into the granite sheer rock face. It was built in 1692 and known as Tiger’s Lair after a sacred monk who meditated in thirteen tiger lair caves there in the 8th century.

The wooden buildings are painted with intricate and colorful patterns that have meaning to the faithful and are connected by stairways made in the rocks. Along the trek from the valley to the monastery are prayer flags, temple bells, a wishing tree and a waterfall.
