Tiger’s Nest (Bhutan) is known by many names like Paro Taktsang, Taktsang Palphug Monastery & Taktshang Goemba. This cliffside glorious monastery situated in the upper Paro Valley is a must visit place for a Spiritual Tourist. Legend has it that in the 8th century Guru Rinpoche(one of the holiest figure in Mahayana Buddhism) flew to this site on a tigress’ back to subdue a local demon. Thereafter, he meditated here for 3 years, 3 months and 3 days. This sacred monastery surrounded by a beautiful forest of blue pine and rhododendrons was built in 1692, around the cave where Guru meditated.
