My World Tuesday-A Monastery in the Forest

The monastery in Sonda is only about 500 years old. It was established by the Guru Sri Vadiraja, in the midst of a dense forest. I was glad to see some of the forest still remaining as we drove through.

  3. I've always thought of monasteries as being well hidden by forest, so it is a good thing this forest still remains. This is not the k9ind of 'forest' I am used to, however!
