Dhankar Gompa is a Buddhist temple in the district of Lahul and Spiti in India. It is situated at an elevation of 3,894 metres (12,774 feet) in the Spiti Valley between the towns of Kaza and Tabo. The complex is built on a 1000-foot (300-metre) high spur overlooking the confluence of the Spiti and Pin Rivers - one of the world's most spectacular settings for a gompa. Dhang or dang means cliff, and kar or khar means fort. Hence Dhangkar means fort on a cliff.

Mnogo lepo mesto ...
Lep pogled na hram, planinu i oblake na nebu, dobra kompozicija.
Veliko i tezak posao da se na planini napravi hram-tvrdjava, uzivanje je gledati lepote prirode i arhitekture..

That's right, nice place for build monastery. It would be interesting to include the rivers. I would maybe add some contrast on this picture.
I saw a nice TV-report on this valley, hope to go there one day.
Have a nice day, Aline
