The remarkable architecture that Bhutan has, Forts, Monasteries, Dzongs and capital buildings is simply amazing with their formation on cliffs edges and mountain sides, capturing a complete mountain some time or simply looking like it’s the end of the edge!  A special mention to Paro Taktsang monastery here also known as Tiger’s Nest that just clings to the cliff above Paro Valley, which is the most famous building picture people have seen of Bhutan.
