- Friday Featured - Tiger Nest Monastery.
The Unesco world heritage sight of Tiger Nest Monastery has to be the most famous icon from the land of thunder dragons. Hanging by a cliff , this Buddhism sacred site has a beautiful legend attached to it.
Guru Padmasamabha or famously known as Rinpoche, flew here seating atop a tigress, and later meditated in this caves. If you look intently from below, you can find the impression of a face of tigress made on the boulder pitch that holds the monastery. Hence , this sacred site justifies it's name of tiger nest.
The amazing monastery was built here around 17th century , and still works as an active site for pilgrimage and worship, highly revered by Buddhist from all over the world , as well as Bhutan itself.
Though famous everywhere by the name of Tiger Nest,, The local region where it is located is called Taktsang, upper Paro valley.
Bhutan journey is almost incomplete if you didn't walk up to there to seek the blessing of the holy spirit that resides inside.
In the next few posts , I am gonna share our latest experience of hiking to this world famous spot and all the stories attached to it.
