    Phuktal Monastery During Monsoon Season Phugtal Monastery or Phugtal Gompa (often transliterated as Phuktal) is a monastery in south-eastern Zanskar, Ladakh in northern India. Founded by Gangsem Sherap Sampo in the early 12th century, the monastery is a unique construction built into the cliffside like a honeycomb. It located on the mouth of a cave on the cliff face of a lateral gorge of a major tributary of the Lungnak (Lingti-Tsarap) River.

    Phuktal Monastery in Ladakh, India, during monsoon season. It kind of reminds me of the Western Air Temple from Avatar, only much more amazing! How does it even exist? Saw the photo of the monastery and thought of where all the officials of the world gathered in Sherlock Holmes A Game of Shadows.
