New on 500px : Barley Fields in front of Chemrey by Angshu by Angshu

Clinging like a swallow’s nest to the sides of a shay conical hill, the magnificent Gompa of Chemrey sees very few visitors because of its location – tucked up the side valley that runs from below Hemis, to the Chang-la pass into Pangong. If one isn’t having one’s own vehicle, then be prepared to do some walking to get there. It takes around fifty minutes to follow the dirt track down to the river and up to the monastery after the Leh -Thak Thok bus drops one off beside the main road.

This is the view of the Chemrey Conpa as seen from the freshly sowed barley fields.

Chemrey Monastery is a 1664 Buddhist monastery, approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) east of Leh, Ladakh, northern India. This monastery of the Drugpa (Red Hat) sect or monastic order in located in eastern Ladakh. It dates back to the 17th century. Today, the Ladakh Chemrey Gompa houses around 20 monks of the diminishing Drugpa community, along with their young novices.

Samsara is a 2001 independent Indian/Italian/French/German film which tells the story of a Buddhist monk’s quest to find Enlightenment was shot near Chemrey.

Bagan is an ancient city located in the Mandalay Region of Burma (Myanmar). From the 9th to 13th centuries, the city was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, the first kingdom to unify the regions that would later constitute modern Myanmar. During the kingdom’s height between the 11th and 13th centuries, over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in the Bagan plains alone, of which the remains of over 2200 temples and pagodas still survive to the present day.

Идет набор группы в тур KANCHENJUNGA TREK – Пять Сокровищ Великих Снегов (12.10.2014 – 03.11.2014). Подробности здесь: http://ift.tt/15ILjps

Мингун-Пайя (окрестности Мандалая, Мьянма) – это огромная кирпичная пагода, которая должна была стать самой большой ступой в мире высотой 150 метров. Строилась она в течении 23 лет и была построена только на треть (53 м), так как астрологи предсказали королю Бодопаю смерть, как только он закончит ее строительство.

Услышав такое предсказание, король тут же, в 1813 году, свернул стройку. Но это его не спасло от скорой смерти и он умер всего спустя 6 лет. А в 1839 году недостроенная пагода пострадала в результате землетрясения, которое оставило на ней гигантские трещины.

Мингун-Пайя огромна, особенно хорошо ее масштаб виден в сравнении с ростом человека. На нее было потрачено столько кирпича, камней и труда, что она чуть не разорила всю империю, может быть, именно поэтому и появилось то предсказание о смерти короля, что если он достроит Пагоду, то погибнет вся империя.
