Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence, Tingmosgang Monastery

This week’s photo challenge wants us to showcase an image that evokes a sentiment of silence. Tingmosgang Monastery is located in Ladakh in the Himalayas. It has been built on a hill that is nestled by tall mountains on all directions. The impression isn’t quite unlike the feeling you get when you’re watching the movie Two Towers when Aragorn arrives at Helm’s Deep (video link below, between 40-55 seconds). However, the overwhelming feeling is one of peace and silence.

      That is true but the effect of standing in that place was exactly like standing where Aragorn is standing in that bit 🙂
