Artist's Description

The most venerated site in Bhutan, The Taktsang Gompa also known as the Tigers Lair was first built in 1692 whwere Guru Padmasambhava, credited for bringing Buddhism to Bhutan, is said to have meditated for three years, three months, three weeks, three days and three hours in the 8th centuary. According to the National Geographic Book, 500 Most Scared Places of a Lifetime, Tiger’s Nest is one of the most powerful places you will ever visit. You may find the complete silence of nature positively haunting or meditate with the tantric chanting of Mahayana monks, who practice in solitude for up to seven years.

According to travelers, seeing the site in person is more moving than they had anticipated, perhaps due to the cliff’s sheer danger and high altitude. The temple, perched in a seemingly impossible location, seems to achieve unity with nature. It may awaken spirituality or a profound admiration of the majesty of nature, appreciation of culture, or splendor of art and architecture.
