Enchanting Monasteries of the World

Dizzying heights, mist and isolation seem to fuel humankind's spiritual quests, and it is no surprise that we find monasteries suspended above deep valleys where the air is clearer even when it is foggier.

Here are a few of the most outrageous Monasteries in the world:


Cave Monasteries of Cappadocia, Turkey





Meteora, Greece - "Build Your House on a Rock"




Taktshang - Tiger's Nest Monastery in Bhutan



Sigiriya, Sri Lanka - The Lion Mountain
