Sometimes nature can be your best companion!
I can spend hours in a place like this. Can you?The photograph above is from a little Gompa in Stok Village in Ladakh, India. It is the perfect place if you are looking for peace and quiet while losing yourself in the lap of nature…or if you are in search of some inspiration.
This photograph above, is of the same location. The Gautama Buddha statue, which stands some 71 feet in height was started in 2012 and completed in 2015. It was dedicated on August 8, 2016 by Tenzin Gyatso, who is the 14th Dalai Lama. Underneath the statue is a beautiful temple with all its walls handpainted by various artists, some even coming from Nepal, depicting various Gods and moments from Buddha’s life. The intricacies of the temple leave you speechless and mesmerized.
There is also a newly constructed cafe right next to it if you wish to make your experience even more delightful while enjoying various types of teas which are very popular among the locals. It’s a beautiful village providing solace from the pressures of daily life besides igniting a little spark of jealousy…for the simple lifestyle!
