New or old, what do we chose..?

An old folk of sumthrang making round the Temple/
 the top part of a stone pillar in front of the temple
believed to have brought by the dakinis
when  the original temples was first built.
Yes, I know, you know and the world is told that Bhutan is culturally rich and it cares so much so far.

This is yet another trend that there are as many new monasteries, Temples and Stupas being built around which is by faith and devotion to a religious sect is wonderful and applaudable. 

And the one who builds also gets name and fame for its action and of course why not appropriate.

But are we thinking of its implications on the country in future to safe guard, protect and conserve our old valuable monuments.

Sumthrang village is surrounded with Five sacred significant landscapes. A cliff like a piled text at north, conch shaped landscape at the south, pure holy spring water at the west and swastika (yungdrung) shaped rock bed at the east.
Here let me explain a little i know about the this wonderful cliff overlooking the village from its north which is one of the five sacred landscapes (with others to follow later).
