One of the most shocking things about #bhutan is the reverence given to the Divine Madman of Bhutan and the worship of his 'magic thunderbolt of wisdom' read phallus, in #chimilhakhang in the district of Punakha. Divine Madmen was the name given to the maverick saint Drukpa Kunley who had unorthodox ways of teaching and questioned the mundane religious customs and conventional norms. It is believed that with his "magic thunderbolt of wisdom" he subdued a demoness of Dochu la and trapped her in a rock close to the black, red and white chorten (the only chorten to be in black). In honor of this feat, his cousin built the monastery in 1499 AD. Because of lama Kunley, phallus es are believed to be a symbol of positive energy and are painted outside homes to ward off the evil eye and malicious gossip. Childless women pray to the fertility goddess and are blessed with a 'wang' from the wooden 'magic thunderbolt of wisdom' inside the monastery. Chimi Lhakhang is a 20 mins trail through a rough dirt path, fields and orchards up a hillock. You could also find interesting wooden phalluses with a face as souvenirs and keychains. #adventuresindbad #phallus #fertilitytemple #happinessisaplace #bhutantourism #bhutandiaries #himalaya #hikingadventures #travelphotography #travelgram #wanderlusting #passionpassport #wildernessculture #travelstoke #mountainlife #instatravel #photosofinstagram #ig_bhutan #punakha #ig_asia #ig_worldphoto #monastery #igtravel #divinemadman #letsgosomewhere #neverstopexploring #lobesa #phallusart

44 years ago today, the Turkish #army invaded the Armenian Monastery of Saint Makarios in #cyprus . . . 14 August 2018 marks the 44th #anniversary of the capture of the #armenian #monastery of Saint #makarios (Sourp Magar or Magaravank) by the Turkish invading Army. The monastery’s keeper, Garabed Toukhtarian from Everek chose to stay at the monastery and also died there in March 1975. During this period, #un peace-keepers would regularly provide him with food and #medicine. However, Rosa Bakalian from #neokhorio has been missing since 14 August 1974 and was last seen that day at the neighbouring village of Trakhoni, to the south of Kythrea. The consequences of the #invasion have been devastating: killed, missing, captured, tortured and/or displaced #cypriots, illegal Turkish and Kurdish settlers and also destruction and plundering of our cultural heritage. Lest we forget… Alexander Michael Hadjilyra – #nicosia – 14 August 2018 #horizonweekly #kypros

Just released another video! In this one we explore the oldest monastery in Iraqi Kurdistan, built in 640 AD. Probably one of the coolest things I’ve ever filmed. #iraq #kurdistan #desert #barren #mountain #monastery #church #vlog #travelvlog #sainthormizdmonastery #middleeast #middleast

Okay I'm calling it- Bhutan is THE most picturesque place I have ever been! More photos of the stunning scenery to come, but this was probably the highlight of my time here! We smashed the hike up to Taktsang Monastery in half the usual time, and were rewarded with this stunning view 😍 . . . . . . . . #bhutan #taktsang #taktshang #tigersnest #paro #bhutanese #monastery #bhutanesearchitecture #temple #bhutan_ig #bhutantravel #hike #hiking #hikingadventures #travelinspiration #bucketlist #traveltheworld #amazingplaces #beautifulplaces #adventuretravel #adventure #iconic #mustsee #travelphotography #travelling #backpacker #view #mountains #wanderlust #sheisnotlost

Outside of #barcelona is the small town #montserrat - a monastery buried in the mountainside. Seen here is a cable car that carries tourists to the top so they can walk along the various paths or visit the #santamaria abbey. . . . #españa #catalonia #catalunya #cataluña #mountainside #mountain #mist #cablecars #spain #travelspain #monastery
