We went to Tabo Monastery after having lunch. Entering into Tabo Monastery was like stepping into Egyptian era. Sun light entering in bits and aroma of the walls make the place look novel.
Over a thousand year old at 3,280 m (10,760 ft) this monastery was found in 996 CE. It makes you feel like you have travelled in time.
When you enter, you’ll see almost 10 sculptures on each side of the wall and a huge one on the front wall. The sculptures have their every feature carved out impeccably. Their nails, hands, eyes, fingers, lips..all are so precisely crafted and colored that they look real. It all looks majestic.
There was not a single space on wall lacking paintings. Their colors weren’t too bright as they were years and years old, but their craft was so vivacious that it made me feel exuberant. Icing on the cake was silence.
The place looked spooky but the ambience those fractals of light created was worth all applauds.
I can go on and on about Tabo Monastery because it left a great impression on my heart. Tasting splendor of this place was euphoric.
Photography isn’t allowed under the old Tabo monastery and I appreciate it. One must preserve the beauty of a place so remote, tranquil and blissful.
