Amazing photo, ugyen! I am so glad that you did find into my gallery to Jesus of Nazareth...you are my first Panoramio-friend from Bhutan! When I was young, I liked to read books which told of Tibet - and I wanted to go there when I should be grown up...Now I am nearly old... and you are coming to me with this nice photos and links.

Interesting place, reminds me of the Holy Mount in Greece where there are many monasteries built in a similar fashion, on mountain slopes.

I can imagine, that it was very difficult to build the monastery there. And I can imagene, that it is very complicating to live there, too. Good photo!
