Monastic Marvels In The Heavens …

Monastic Marvels In The Heavens
Were the monks who built these marvels seeking to be closer to God or were they perhaps more prosaically seeking reclusion and safety?
Whatever the reason, you have to admire the sheer tenacity, skill and effort that went into building these high-altitude sanctuaries through backbreaking labour. What a tribute to their faith!!
I've as yet been to none of these, proof that there are still more wonders to be seen in the world than we shall ever have the time to cover completely.
Enjoy!
