Takstang Monastery in the Kingdom of Bhutan

Officially called the Kingdom of Bhutan and the last remaining country in Asia, Bhutan is located at the eastern end of the Himalayas and is surrounded by India and China. In 2006, Business Week magazine ranked Bhutan the happiest country in Asia and the eighth happiest country in the world based on a global survey.

One of its most famous sites and one of the holiest pilgrimage sites in the Himalayas, the Takhtsang Monastery (meaning “Tiger’s Den”) is known as the Tiger’s Nest Monastery. Hanging from a high cliff, visitors must climb the slopes on foot or by mules to reach it.

The monastery was built in 1692 by Gyalse Tenzin Rabgye, who is believed to be the reincarnation of Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche), who is said to have arrived here from Tibet on the back of a tiger. He then practiced meditation in Takchang Cave for three months before passing through the eight classes of evil spirits and converting the valley to Buddhism.

Guru Rinpoche then returned to Tibet and took his teachings to his disciples. One of his disciples Belki returned to Takchang to meditate and he named the cave Belki Cave. Belki is believed to have gone to Nepal, where he later died. His body miraculously returned to Takchang Monastery with the blessing of Lord Dorji Leg and was now enshrined in a hut that stood in the room to the left above the entrance.

Ephesus, an ancient Greek city and later the largest Roman city, is located in modern-day Selcuk in the Izmir province of Turkey. During the classical Hellenistic era, it was one of the twelve cities of the Ionian League, and during Roman times it was for many years the second largest city in the Roman Empire.

Ephesus is famous for the Temple of Artemis the Winter travel places, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, represented by an inconspicuous pillar. Ephesus was also one of the seven Asian churches mentioned in Revelation, and the Gospel of John may have been written here.

In addition, the Library of Celsus, which contained approximately 12,000 manuscripts, was originally built in 125 AD to commemorate the ancient Greek Tiberius Julius Celsus Polymenes, who served as Roman ruler of Asia in the Roman Empire. He paid for the construction with his own money and was buried in a coffin under it.

Today, the ruins of Ephesus are a popular local and international tourist attraction, in part because they are easily accessible from Adnan Menderes Airport and through the port of Kusadasi.
