The rock hewn temple on Mt. Kailasa Tibet ca. 8th C. The Himalayan mountain residence of Lord Shiva. Sacred to millions of Hindus, Jains, Buddhists and once the pre-buddhist Tibetan Bons. It is so remote only a small fraction of devotees can make the pilgrimage.
The Shahara Bridge in Yemen. This engineering marvel spans a sheer 300 foot deep canyon. Built in the early 17th Century, this famous bridge has stood the test of time. From both sides of the bridge the mountains parted and revealed a glimpse of the enormous valley. The bridge must be crossed in order to access the mountain fortress town of Shahara and its beautiful terraced fields.
