Monastery Mahayan Prakash Palyuldharmalya. In the WS a view from inside.
"Mahayana" sutras are a very broad genre of Buddhist scriptures (sutras) which according to Mahayana Buddhists represent original teachings of the Buddha. The earliest scripture that mentions "Mahayana" is the Lotus Sutra, probably compiled in its earliest form in the first century CE.
"Prakash" is a common Indian/Sri Lankan name derived from Sanskrit, literally meaning "bright light" or "Sunlight" or "Moonlight" or "light of the world" or "revelation"
I don't know the meaning of "Palyuldharmalya", nothing found on www.
"We can transform any problem, even death, into happiness. The point is not to stop the experience of problems but to stop the conditions that we call 'problems' from disturbing our mind, and instead use them to support the spiritual path that we practice." Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Hi Achim. Great photo. The gold statues on the roof make a pleasant change from TV aerials and satellite dishes ;-). Good colour and sharpness. Thanks for sharing.

voilà un monument pas très grand mais si finement décoré qu'il en attire l'attention par ses couleurs.
Le ciel est superbe et les couleurs vives, des lumières bien équilibrées en zones d'ombres et de soleil.
L'argenté et le doré ressortent très bien.

Beautiful architecture and nice contrast of colors with the sky. A fascinating exotic place very well presented from this POV. The bell attracts the eye as well as the golden details on top. Thanks for the complementar interior too.

Where are we today? On the map I mean. One never knows what you`re going to post. :>
A fine picture, clear and sharp, and a definitely fine cultural motive, well worth publishing. Nothing bad about it.

Hallo Achim. Eine interessante Impression aus Nepal, und eine scharfe und detailreiche Aufnahme dieses großartigen Klosters. Die Passanten bringen nicht nur einen erfreulich lebhaften Aspekt, sondern sind auch hilfreich, um die Dimensionen der Architektur einzuschätzen. Well captured.
TopGeo (38216) 2008-12-08 7:34
Hi Achim Are distinct decorative the facade of temple the architecture and the colours. I like, the impressive composition and the picture and the good note. perhaps it is a impressive generally speaking region because I distinguish also the world and the other buildings they is interests
axiotea (21651) 2008-12-08 8:37
I think you've chosen an adequate pov because it seems it was not too easy to get the entire monastery including the bell without having disturbing element! The soft light and colors are very pleasant! The inside view is also interesting...and thanks for the note ;)
feather (51130) 2008-12-08 8:52
You wouldn't want to be just passing as they struck that huge bell! ;D I like both this and the interior in the WS. They both show excellent colour and detail.

Nice daily scene in your capture. I like the light and the color in the image, the dynamism and the life that the people offer us, and the traditional architecture so beautiful decorated that we can enjoy in your composition.
Nice work, my friend.

Hi, Achim -
Nice colorful street scene with great architecture. The people are mostly well placed (except the half man in the fg).
jafadabret (56501) 2008-12-09 2:34
Ce monastère sous cette lumière rayonne sur cette place. Les couleurs et l'architecture sont plaisantes.
asajernigan (21427) 2008-12-09 3:28
Beautiful architecture here!! Your composition is fine including the bell in the foreground. The angle of the shot gives the scene nice depth and balance. The lighting and colors are fine with nice sharpness and DOF.
Waylim (25436) 2008-12-09 17:28
Wonderful photo of this very beautiful monastery, a very interesting image of collecting 3 types of religions in one shot. As I observed, the Monastery is Bhudist and there is a monk on the left and one on the roof of the temple, the couple of the weman walking are Hindhu, the man in the foreground with a hat is Muslem. Excellent quality photo, with beautiful color and light and good composition. Well done. Thanks Achim.
Emile (20352) 2008-12-12 15:04
Nice architecture, a beautiful monastery, the people in front creates a good daily life scene. Your colors, POV and sharpness are very good.
testmaniac (13508) 2008-12-13 11:17
Hi Achim, good shot and interesting place! Nice architecture!
stego (24132) 2008-12-15 16:14
I am sure that I am not the only one who had never seem a photo of this monastery, and that reason alone would make the post very interesting. But beside that, it's a very nice photo, with superb clarity, colours well rendered and a good presentation of the daily life on that place whose magic doesn't end in the amazing big stupa that every one knows.

deine Bilder (zusammen mit den informativen Beschreibungen) bringen uns in die Teile der Welt, die ich persönlich wahrscheinlich nie sehen werde. Eine hervorragende Leistung, ich bin Dir dankbar dafür!
