Incredible Planet Earth

Photography helps us in understanding mother nature, having a closer look on what's happening around which we can't see with naked eyes. I am just trying to present this another perspective of our life by means of photography. And above all whenever I take a picture of a sad, poor, or tensed people of this busy world, I make them smile for a moment. πŸ™‚ I work with NGO's to help them in creating quality contents for their campaigns without any charge. If you're an NGO please feel free to connect with me for any creative assistance. In leisure time, I love to share my knowledge and teach elements of photography to young kids and enthusiasts. Message me your photography related queries I will be more than happy to answer them.

"The Tiger's Nest - Land of The Thunder Dragon and Gross National Happiness"

Tiger's Nest is a prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site and the temple complex is located in the cliffside of the upper Paro valley in Bhutan.

A temple complex was first built in 1692, around the Taktsang Senge Samdup cave where Guru Padmasambhava is said to have meditated for three years, three months, three weeks, three days and three hours in the 8th century. Padmasambhava is credited with introducing Buddhism to Bhutan and is the tutelary deity of the country. Today, Paro Taktsang is the best known of the thirteen taktsang or "tiger lair" caves in which he meditated.

The temple devoted to Padmasambhava (also known as Gu-ru mTshan-brgyad Lhakhang, "the Temple of the Guru with Eight Names") is an elegant structure built around the cave in 1692 by Gyalse Tenzin Rabgye. It has become the cultural icon of Bhutan.

The monastery is located 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) to the north of Paro and hangs on a precarious cliff at 3,120 metres (10,240 ft), about 900 metres (3,000 ft) above the Paro valley, on the right side of the Paro Chu (β€˜chu’ Bhutanese means ”river or water”. The rock slopes are very steep (almost vertical) and the monastery buildings are built into the rock face.

Gross National Happiness is a philosophy that guides the government of Bhutan. It includes an index which is used to measure the collective happiness and well-being of a population. Gross National Happiness is instituted as the goal of the government of Bhutan in the Constitution of Bhutan, enacted on 18 July 2008.

β€œThe most beautiful in the world is, of course, the world itself.” – Wallace Stevens

Prague, capital city of the Czech Republic, is bisected by the Vltava River. Nicknamed β€œthe City of a Hundred Spires,” it's known for its Old Town Square, the heart of its historic core, with colorful baroque buildings, Gothic churches and the medieval Astronomical Clock, which gives an animated hourly show. Completed in 1402, pedestrian Charles Bridge is lined with statues of Catholic saints.

Vienna - The most livable city in the world at the moment! 🎊

Vienna has now pushed to the top of the list by the Economist Intelligence Unit at 2018, replacing Melbourne who was first from 2011-2017. Vienna has been top ranked by the Mercer Quality of Living Survey since 2009.

I choose the St. Stephen's Cathedral tower to show the splendid beauty of the city since no building is allowed to stand taller than the domes of this church. For more than 700 years now, the magnificent cathedral has stood watch over the city of Vienna, and Austrians see it as one of the most important and most beloved landmarks of the country.

Just climbed the 343 steps up to the tower to capture this breathtaking cityscape before dusk. Isn't it amazing? ☺️
