ORNATELY CRAFTED CHILLIPAM BUDDHIST MONASTERY

To me ornate is elaborate, extravagant, an intricate shape or a embellished object.

I was in awe with the grandeur and aura of Chillipam monastery in Tenga in Tawang district, India.

Beautiful ! Isolated, wild, peaceful…. these adjectives came to my mind as I admired this ornately designed gompa.

Look at the patterns, the details, the unapologetic commitment to symmetry and intricacy: it was just irresistible.DSC_2683

  1. Those monasteries are absolutely amazing. I have always wanted to visit them. There were mosques in Jerusalem that were equally ornate, but very different in style. Breathtaking!
