. +++++++++. Stakna monastery. .+++++++++ The pictursque Stakna monastery lies at a distance of 25 Kms from Leh on the bank of the river Indus surrounded by mountains. The monastery formed part of the one of the many religious estates offered to the great scholar saint of Bhutan called Chosje Jamyang Palkar in about 1580 AD by the Dharmaraja Jamyang Namgial who had invited him to Ladakh. The monastery was built on a 60 meter hill shaped like a tiger nose and so its name was given as Stakna (Tiger nose). The most important image in the monastery is that of the sacred Arya Avaloketesvara from Kamrup (Assam). There are about 40 monks in residence. The successive reincarnation of the Stakna Tulku act as the incumbents the monastery and they continue to fulfil the fine responsibility of upholding the teachings of the Dugpa order. The branch monasteries attached to Stakna are those of Mud and Kharu and that of Stakrimo, Bardan and Sani in Zanskar. A short ride from Leh usually takes about 30-45 mins, the view from the top of the Monastery is absolutely amazing . The Monastery is built on a hill and the road is made up of small and big rocks so its quite tricky to ride but quite a bit of fun as well. -------- #tra#travelorld #travelphotography #travel #tourism #leh #ladakh #jammu #kashmir #bag#bagpacker #bagpacker #travelblogger #budhhism #monastery #temple #history #structure #monument

さて、明日の朝の便で飛んで久々(半年ちょい振り)の日本です。 取り敢えず、食べ物の事で頭がいっぱいです。(照) 写真は、今日たまたま通った道にあった共産圏的な雰囲気のモニュメント。 道のど真ん中にスドーンとあったらそりゃ~Uターンして撮るでしょう。 そんなメキシコ、もう普通に28℃とかです。 先ずは、お蓉さんに会いに鹿児島に行くのですが、最高気温13℃と表示されている。 だいぶ暖かくなっていて良かった。(弱) #メキシコ #モニュメント #共産圏 #一時帰国 #食べまくりじゃあ #mexico #monument #communistbloc #backtojapan #foodeater

The dragonhouses (Greek: Δρακόσπιτα, Drakospita) or Draga (Δραγκά) are some 20 large, ruined buildings found in the south of the island of Euboea, Greece. They were built with massive stone blocks without mortar and large stone slabs for the roofs. The Dragon House on Mount Ochi (Δρακόσπιτο της Όχης), north of Karystos is the most famous and well preserved. In local folklore "dragons" are not only reptilian monsters but also beings with superhuman powers. There is no accepted theory about the identity of the builders nor an agreed estimation on their dating. No mention is identified in classical texts and the first account is from the 18th-century British geologist, traveler and writer John Hawkins. • • • • • #ancient #monument #house #blackandwhite #bnw #bnw_society #moodygrams #explore #tra#travelgram #travel

Day 8, Lourve museum, part 2. Of course Mrs. Lisa Gherardini (Monalisa) got the most attention from all. And overdose of history, art and cultures. I am still drunk on the diversity of it all. And I am not sure if I saw it all . It is that huge and still growing. A very well maintained museum and also profitable I think by the way they have commercialized the compete process . . . #lourve #lourvemuseum #lourvemusee #museum #art #history #culture #paintings #sculptures #utility #pyramidmuseum #france #paris #ancient #antiques #islamic #egyptian #greek #storiesfromthepast #historic #monument #historyoffrance #europe #british #monalisa #leonardodavinci #vinci #raphael #angelo
