Title: Painting of the Tigers Nest, Paro

In the mountains above Paro lies the famous very small monastery called Tigers Nest. It is a legendary spot, because the Buddhist saint Padmasambhava is supposed to have lived here. In the surroundings footsteps in the rocks are supposed te be left by him. These marks are revered as holy places.
I was not able to go there myself, but somewhere on the way I found this painting of the place.
