The Taktsang Monastery (also known as a Dzong) is high up in the Paro valley area of the country and work started on this amazing structure in 1692, the same year as the first Salem Witch Trial. It is said that the famous guru Padmasambhava pursued his meditations here for three months. It is quite possibly the most famous cultural symbol of Bhutan. Local legend has it that the guru flew here from Tibet on the back of a tigress which gives the place its other name – the Tiger’s Nest. LINK

Built in 1692, the Taktsang Dzong or Tiger's Nest monastery near Paro, Bhutan, was constructed around a cave where Guru Padmasambhava, credited with introducing Buddhism to Bhutan, is said to have meditated for three months in the 8th century LINK
