.
.
Taktsang Lhakhang is Bhutan’s most iconic landmark and religious site. The name Taktsang translates to “The Tiger’s Nest”. This temple is one of the most holy sites in the kingdom and clings impossibly to a sheer cliff face 900 meters above the Paro Valley.

It was first built in 1692 at a cave where Guru Rimpoche meditated in the 7th century A.D. Legend states that Guru Rimpoche flew to the site atop the back of a tigress and meditated in the cave for 3 years, 3 months, 3 days and 3 hours in order to subdue evil demons residing within it. The cave has been considered a sacred site ever since and many famous saints have travelled to meditate in it.

Historic Centre of Oaxaca and Archaeological Site of Monte Albán.
.
Inhabited over a period of 1,500 years by a succession of peoples – Olmecs, Zapotecs and Mixtecs – the terraces, dams, canals, pyramids and artificial mounds of Monte Albán were literally carved out of the mountain and are the symbols of a sacred topography. The nearby city of Oaxaca, which is built on a grid pattern, is a good example of Spanish colonial town planning. The solidity and volume of the city's buildings show that they were adapted to the earthquake-prone region in which these architectural gems were constructed.

Monte Alban is the most important archaeological site of the Valley of Oaxaca. Inhabited over a period of 1,500 years by a succession of peoples – Olmecs, Zapotecs and Mixtecs – the terraces, dams, canals, pyramids and artificial mounds of Monte Albán were literally carved out of the mountain and are the symbols of a sacred topography. The grand Zapotec capital flourished for thirteen centuries, from the year 500 B.C to 850 A.D. when, for reasons that have not been established, its eventual abandonment began. The archaeological site is known for its unique dimensions which exhibit the basic chronology and artistic style of the region and for the remains of magnificent temples, ball court, tombs and bas-reliefs with hieroglyphic inscriptions.

The Abu Simbel Temple consists of two huge temples (the Great Temple and the Small Temple) that were carved into the mountainside. The temple complex was commissioned by Ramesses II, one of ancient Egypt’s most renowned pharaohs.
.
.
According to some scholars, work on the Abu Simbel Temple began around 1264 BC. This is based on the fact that the artwork decorating the interior of the Great Temple indicates that the monument was created to celebrate, to a certain extent, the victory of Ramesses II over the Hittites at the Battle of Kadesh in 1274 BC.
.
.
Alternatively, the year 1244 BC has also been suggested as the year when the construction of the Abu Simbel Temple commenced. According to this hypothesis, the temple is located on the border with the conquered lands of Nubia, and thus was built following the military campaigns carried out by the pharaoh against the Nubians.

Therefore, the Kuthodaw pagoda is regarded as the largest book in the world of which each slab is like a page.
The scrips were written on the slabs originated from Sutta Pitaka, Vinaya Pitaka, and Abhidhamma Pikata. All of them has contributed to making up the Tripitaka, the Buddha’s teachings by ancient Pali language that was first written on dried palm leaves.

It took 8 years to complete since 1860 when the King Midon ordered to build. The white shrines are lines in rows together with large corridors between them. Besides, there are 4 entrances in each side of the pagoda which are decorated arches over them.

A brief history of the Balinese wood carving art form. The history of Balinese wood carving can be traced back hundreds of years Balinese art, as a whole, is of Hindu-Javanese origin. The art forms there began as a result of artisans from the Majapahit Kingdom who expanded to the Balinese territory in the 13th century. The village of Kamasan, Klungkung became the center for classical Balinese art during the sixteenth century, and remained as such until the twentieth century, when new kinds of art developed in the region.
.
Balinese wood carving, as an artform, underwent a period of transformation in the mid-twentieth century, roughly during the 1940’s. The main art center then shifted to Ubud and its surrounding villages. However, each independent village region is known for its own respective form of art. While Ubud and Batuan are synonymous with paintings, Celuk is known for gold and silver arts, Batubulan is known for stone carvings, and Mas is the place to go for wood carvings.

The literal translation of the word “Namaste” breaks down into three sections...Nama means bow; as means I; and, te means you. Thus, I bow to you. The gesture is a greeting in India. Most often we hold our hands together in the prayer position at our heart chakra. This gesture is called Añjali Mudrā or Pranamasana.
