Изнутри церковь комплекса Санта-Кьяра, восстановленная после бомбежки во время Второй Мировой войны и вернувшая свой изначальный строгий готический облик, мало отличается от своих европейских готических сестёр, а вот монастырский двор комплекса поистине уникален. Помимо великолепной майолики с изображениями средневековых карнавалов, морских путешествий, охоты и повседневной жизни Неаполя, и фресок Джотто, монастырский двор святого Франциска с его фруктовым садом, фонтанами, беседками и галереями, сам по себе является произведением искусства. ... ПРОДОЛЖЕНИЕ СЛЕДУЕТ 🔜 Inside, the church of Santa Chiara complex, that was restored after the Second World War bombing during and returned its original austere Gothic appearance, differs little from its European Gothic sisters, but the monastery courtyard of the complex is truly unique. In addition to the frescoes of Giotto and the magnificent majolica with images of medieval carnivals, voyages, hunting and everyday life of Naples, the monastery courtyard of St. Francis, with its orchard, with fountains, gazebos and galleries, is itself a work of art. ...

Bosjökloster. (Bosjökloster 25:1) - The construction of Bosjö Abbey (Monastery) was completed c.1180 as a nunnery, one of three found in Skåne. The oldest document that mentions it was written by Pope Lucius III in 1181, when he confirmed its privileges. According to this letter the land was donated by a "Tord That", according to legend this is Tord Aagesen Thott, the first known ancestor of the noble family Thott. Called "Tord the Bearded" he was a former viking chief who had been baptized into Christianity. These nunneries belonged to the Benedictine Order sometimes called the Black Monks for their clothing, a monastic Catholic order of monks and nuns that follow Saint Benedict. This abbey was built on what was originally a large island in the lake Ringsjön which after water levels lowered became an isthmus. The monastery church, Bosjökloster Church, was built in 1175 and became one of the four walls for the courtyard. - During the 1500's the nunnery was closed down during the Protestant Reformation and became property of the Danish crown, transformed into a castle only some of the old building remains. It was then donated to the Archbishop of Lund, Torbern Bille, under the condition that he took care of the remaining nuns. In 1560 Frederick II gave the estate as a barter to the widowed noble woman Thale Ulfstand. Her initials and the year 1569 are carved into the large oak doors of the entrance and are still visible. It then passed to the Beck family by marriage in 1629, but Jochum Beck lost the family fortune and sold it to Corfitz Ulfeldt to repay his debts. Ulfeldt is known as a traitor who at the Treaty of Roskilde negotiated for Sweden and was convicted of treason by a Danish court and fled into exile. His wife Leonora Christina, daughter of Christian IV, was captured in his place by the Danish authorities and was imprisoned in the Blue Tower, Copenhagen for 22 years. The composer Hilding Rosenberg was born here in 1892. The castle fell into disrepair but in 1735 it was returned to the Beck family who renovated it. They sold it in 1908 to Count Philip Bonde, whose family are still owners. Today there are art exhibitions, a restaurant and concerts held he

A selection of Photographs by Simon Norfolk @simonnorfolkstudio Mes Aynak is a significant archaeological site 40km (25 mi) outside Kabul, Afghanistan. The area contains the country's largest copper deposit, as well as the remains of an ancient settlement with hundreds of Buddhist statues, stupas and a monastery complex. In 2007 a lease was sold to a Chinese state-owned mining company to exploit the copper reserves beneath the site. Here a selection of Archaeological objects from the dig, kept in the National Museum of Afghanistan, juxtaposed with portraits of some of the labourers excavating the site. Many workers are ambivalent about the history they’re helping bring to light, feeling no personal connection to a pre-Islamic past. It doesn’t help that the Taliban have threatened some workers, accusing them of promoting Buddhism. Still, there’s admiration for the achievements of the past. “My forefathers were Muslim,” says one labourer and Afghan Army veteran who gave his name only as Javed. “But we know a lot of generations passed through this land. When I'm working, I'm imagining that here was a civilisation, …kings here. Yes, this is Afghanistan also.” Follow @simonnorfolkstudio @natgeo #must_see_afghanistan #afghanistan_you_never_see #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #archaeology #monastery #afghanistan #mesaynak #buddha #buddhism #history #worldheritage #heritage #simonnorfolkstudio #buddhist #documentary #reportage #museum #artefacts #artifacts #portraits #islam #muslim #afghanhistory #untwo #افغانستان_را_باید_دید #افغانستان #تاریخ #بودا

Памятник афонскому старцу, настоятелю Рыльского Свято-Николаевского мужского монастыря архимандриту Ипполиту (Халину, 1928-2002) установили 18 июля во Владикавказской епархии. Ипполита называют современным апостолом Алании. Он никогда не был в Осетии, но своими добротой и любовью спас тысячи соотечественников в тяжелые годы на рубеже XX–XXI веков. Отец Ипполит поднял из руин Свято-Николаевский монастырь в Рыльске, куда из разных уголков страны и зарубежья потянулся поток богомольцев. По молитвам старца множество людей обрели веру, исцелились от неизлечимых недугов. Имея послушание молиться за Аланию, он благословил строительство Аланских монастырей – Свято-Успенского мужского и Богоявленского женского. #алагир#алагирскийженскиймонастырь#отецИпполит#russia#vladikavkaz#Халин#осетиятур4х4#гидмарат#гидмараткисиев#владикавказ#осетия#ирыстон#изосетиислюбовью#христианство#вера#святойотец#памятник#активныйотдых#горы#mountain#священник#алания#аланскиймонастырь#монастырь#monastery#church#travel#turismo#turista#alagir

Lo Gekar is one of the oldest buddhist monastery in the world. Its Ghar Gonpa is believed to be built at the same time as Samye Gonpa of Tibet during the eight century. This wise old Lama showed us the inside, whose walls were covered with paintings of fearsome daemons. His guidance was precious like a candle in the darkest of nights.😊 . . #nepal #nepalpictures #uppermustang #discovernepal#nepal_love #monk #buddhism #lama #monastery #nepal8thwonder #insta_nepal #nepali_instagrammers #nepalicolture#trekkingtoes  #theoutbound #natgeoyourshot #outdoor #mountain #ourplanetdaily #discoverglobe #agameoftones #moodygrams #tonesbox #hippie_in_himalayas #kings_third_age #sight_people

Река Нерль. Владимирская область. Майское утро.

Иконостас Большого собора. В соответствии с традицией, ежегодно в праздник Донской иконы Божией Матери, 1 сентября (19 августа ст. стиля), в монастырь из Государственной Третьяковской галереи доставляют Донскую икону, написанную, по преданию, в XIV веке иконописцем Феофаном Греком. Донская икона Божией Матери - икона Богородицы с младенцем Христом на руках, выполненная в иконографическом изводе Елеуса. Икона является двусторонней, на её обороте изображено Успение Богородицы. Тысячи людей заполняют монастырский двор, радостно встречая Патриарха Московского и всея Руси, который ежегодно совершает богослужение в честь праздника. #московскиемонастыри #донской #донскоймонастырь #зима #москва #moscow #стараямосква #mosquarium #православие #everydayeverywhere #moskva #russia #крест #донскоймонастырь #монастырь #monastery #donskoymonastery #россия #orthodox #moscow #instagood #goodtime #photo #happy #happiness #life #beauty

be happy, be calm @ my notes

Chinese architecture always amazes me. I always find myself at awe whenever I visit places with temples. It’s simply breathtaking. You need to walk at least 20 minutes from the cable car station to reach Po Lin Monastery. Along the way there are gift shops, cafes and oh Starbucks Coffee shop which made the place feels city-like located on top of the mountain. The monastery was founded in 1906 by three monks visiting from Jiangsu Province on the Chinese mainland and was initially known simply as "The Big Hut" (大茅蓬 Tai Mao Pung). The main temple houses three bronze statues of the Buddha – representing his past, present and future lives – as well as many Buddhist scriptures. #hongkong #travel #monastery #chinesearchitecture #travelphotography #traveller #travelling

About a ten minute walk from Laurentina Metro, at the very end of the B Line, is a hidden oasis of tranquillity. A sudden branch off Via Laurentina, which leads out of Rome to the south east, leads through an unassuming stone gate, to a road lined only by trees. This seemingly forested way leads to an ancient Sanctuary, all but unknown even to Italians, that of the Abbazia delle Tre Fontane, or Three Fountains Abbey. This is sacred ground in Christendom, it being believed to be the site of the martyrdom of St. Paul. A church was first built here in the 5th century, on the site of his execution, though it would be four centuries later that it would meet glory, when Charlemagne himself would bestow upon the monastic community extensive feudal holdings. The ravages of time, Napoleonic crackdowns on monasteries and even malaria would take their toll, before an intrepid colony of Trappists would resettle it in 1868. Today, despite its tremendous prestige in Catholicism, it retains a highly authentic monastic atmosphere, which we will explore over the next few days! ⛪📿🌳 . . . #abbaziadelletrefontane #abbaziatrefontane #threefountainsabbey #stpaul #sanpaolo #abbey #abbeysofinstagram #abbazia #charlemagne #trappists #trappisti #vialaurentina #20regionsin2years #volgoroma #yallersroma #peaceful #peacefulspot #infinity_hdr #forestpath #ig_roma #igersroma #ig_lazio #igerslazio #monastery #monasticlife

Since lots of people keep asking me what goes on in my mind before I shoot something. So here's what was in my mind before I shot this quaint monastery in Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, India where we stayed for two nights while working on our book @bhagwaankepakwaan with @varudgupta @toni_2512 1. We will have to stand 70 odd mins at one location since the timer aint working on the second camera. 2. Tripod (un)balanced on inclined rocks for this angle along with Toni(my assistant) and I. Since we didn't have sand bags at this moment. 3. Winds will be freezing us to the bone and we have to slightly hold the tripod so it doesn't fly away (without making it shake) 4. Hoping a cloud doesn't float by and ruin the sun reveal by it's shadow. 5. Am I exposing correctly as the exposures will change constantly as the sun rises. 6. Can we go lower than this vantage point but that would be too risky. How I wish I could have gone lower .

The Kagyu Thekchen Ling Monastery is although a small spiritual place but it's very peaceful and offers views that can overwhelm you with awe, Calmness and a sense of humility. In the backdrops, is LAVA BAZAAR a small hamlet situated 34 kilometres east of the town of Kalimpong near Algarah in Kalimpong district of the state of West Bengal, India. Lava is situated at an altitude of 7,016 feet. It is one of the few places in West Bengal to receive snow in winter.

The Chenrezig Statue, at 137 feet, is the tallest statue in the world. Chenrezig or Avalokiteshvara is the earthly manifestation of eternal Buddha, Amitabha. Of all the places we went to in Sikkim, this place had the best view of the Kangchenjunga. Our guide was pretty annoyed at us for taking an hour instead of the 15 minutes he gave us to wrap up this part of the tour xD . . . . . #monastery #instagood #nature #beautiful #temple #travelphotography #vacation #instago #igdaily #trip #explore #travel #igers #mytravelgram #travelgram #igtravel #instatravel #pelling #chenrezig #sikkim #westbengal #sikkimdiaries #india #indiadiaries #southasia
