Tiger's Nest

Taktsang Palphug Monastery (translated as "Tiger's Nest") sits precariously on a cliffside overlooking the Paro Valley in Bhutan. This monastery was built three hundred years ago, on the site of a cave in the cliff face where where Guru Padmasambhava is said to have meditated for three years, three months, three weeks, three days and three hours in the 8th century. This figure was key in bringing Bhuddhism to Bhutan, and is revered throughout the country. Anu Pehrson built this beautiful LEGO rendition of the Tiger's Nest.
