“Întorcînd privirea spre apus, îți vine să crezi că un popor de uriași a însuflețit cîndva aceste locuri și că, precum odinioară s-a zvîrlit munte peste munte spre a se lua cerul cu asalt, tot astfel și aici s-au îngrămădit, una peste alta, acele stînci enorme spre a-și da, poate, pămîntul mîna cu cerul. Și sînt acele stînci atît de imense, atît de goale și tăiate de niște mîini supranaturale, pe linii așa de lungi și de capricios unghiulate, încît îți aduc amețeală în suflet, îți curmă firul gândirii, te apasă pe creieri și te lasă înmărmurit și mut…”(Pe drumuri de munte-Spre mănăstiri)

On a wing and a prayer: The extraordinary hanging monasteries that cling to the sides of cliffs

By Daily Mail Reporter

When you’re trying to connect with your god, it helps to find some peace and quiet, if you can.
But that was, indeed, no such problem for the architects of these impossibly built monasteries.
Constructed at dizzying heights on the sides of mountains, they ensured only the most devoted – and vertigo-free – followers would join them for prayer.

Many were only accessible by steep and secret paths in order to provide the most seclusion as they sought uninterrupted spiritual awakening.
By far the most precarious is a monastery that dangles seemingly in defiance of the laws of physics on the side of Mt Huashan in China.
Located around 75 miles east from Xi’an City of Shaanxi Province, Mt Huashan is known as ‘The number one precipitous mountain under Heaven’. It is one of the five sacred mountains in China.
It is home to several influential Taoist temples where emperors of past dynasties made pilgrimages, making Mt Huashan the holy land of Taoism.
Vertigo-inducing: The Sumela monastery in Turkey was created 386AD apparently after two priests discovered a miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary in a cave on the mountain

In Bhutan, the Taktshang Tiger’s Nest monastery clings to a cliff 2,300ft above the Paro Valley floor.
According to legend, it takes its name from the ‘second Buddha’, Precious Guru Padmasambhava, who travelled to the site on a tiger.
Some visitors have reportedly fallen to their death on the way up after apparently losing their footing.
But the desire to build in such vertigo-inducing places isn’t just confined to Asia. Turkey has its own, the monastery of Sumela, perched at an altitude of 3,900ft.

It was created in 386AD during the reign of Emporer Theodosius I apparently after two priests discovered a miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary in a cave on the mountain.
As with most of these great buildings, they aren’t the easiest to access. In Greece, the Roussanou Monastery could only be accessed by baskets lifted by pulleys, until roads, steps and bridges were contructed in the 1920s.
It is one of six active monasteries in the Meteora complex, one the largest and most important developments of its kind, only behind Mount Athos.
The monasteries are built on natural sandstone rock pinnacles near the Pinios.

Another stunning piece of architecture, which also places a rock at the heart of its construction, is Sigiriya, or Lion’s Rock, in the central Matale District of Sri Lanka.
Built on a ‘magma plug’, the sacred city contains the ruins of the original temple, which dates back to 500AD.

 Trebuie sa fii temerar ca sa te duci pe varfurile acelea,sa te rogi sa iti gasesti linistea…
locuri izolate…departe de ochii lumii…
legende…
Eu de aici ,ma intreb cum oare au fost construite …
am fost la multe manastiri situate prin poieni linistite,,altele in paduri,dar inca nu am ajuns la vreuna asemanatoare celor din imagini…
chiar parca nu ai cuvinte privindu-le…

De multa vreme stiu de el dar nu am reusit sa il vad pentru ca imi trebuia un cod  incorporat la cel pe care l-am gasit… aparea “unavailable”.
Astazi l-am descoperit in alta parte…

HIENELE AU ATACAT SATELE IN SUDUL IORDANIEI

Aseara TVRI ne-a oferit fimul Ciprian Porumbescu…l-am mai vazut, insa imi sunt dragi marii actori romani care ne-au lasat filme  foarte frumoase pe care le vom vedea mereu la fel ca prima oara(vorbesc de mine)…mi se innodasera lacrimile sub barba …atata verdeata,paduri pe-acolo,campul cu margarete, martor al dragostei dintre Ciprian si Berta..balada lui Ciprian,si opereta Crai nou…chiar ma simteam  pe alte meleaguri…Inainte sa se sfarseasca filmul,a venit pe la mine scorpioana,o  veche prietena , cu fiicele ei…si am revenit la” realitate“… am discutat despre hienele pradatoare care ataca satele in  sudul Iordaniei…povestea a inceput  atunci cand hienele au mancat un copilas mic pe care l-au rapit din fata locuintei chiar in prezenta familiei…oamenii au cerut ajutorul autoritatilor…ulterior a mai fost ucisa de hiene inca o fetita de 4 ani…Autoritatile au inceput vanatoarea hienelor si a lupilor care s-au raspandit in vaile de sub munti…pana la urma au fost ucise 2 animale…dimensiunile lor sunt mult mai mari decat a unei hiene obisnuite …fenomenul nu pare normal din cauza ca pana acum, ele nu au coborat de sus de pe munti in sate cu iluminat stradal si populatie multa,ci traiau sus prin grote , neplacandu-le lumina si locurile populate…dupa aceasta poveste care nu a luat sfarsit ,oamenii de acolo se simt amenintati…autoritatile au luat masuri de aparare si chiar oamenii umbla inarmati…hienele sunt multe…

***iar “gura satului”a fabricat tot felul de povestioare pe langa cea originala…adevarate conspiratii…am uitat sa spun ca hienele au venit in Iordania din Israel …de acolo din muntii lor coboara…

VALEA LUNII(Wadi Rum2)

Rum Mounts,muntii  din Valea Lunii (Iordania)au creste care se ridica la 1734m deasupra marii.Cel mai inalt a fost denumit”CEI SAPTE STALPI AI INTELEPCIUNII”din cauza formei pe care o are,denumire data de T.Lawrence(Lawrence of Arabia).In aceste locuri sunt indicii ale prezentei omului din cele mai vechi timpuri cunoscute.Arheologii sunt siguri ca zona a fost locuita in perioada preistorica,in principal in perioada neolitica in sec 6-8 i.Hr.si a fost cunoscuta sub numele de Wadi Irum.Izvoarele de apa dulci au facut din Wadi Rum un centru de intalnire al caravanelor comerciale  care se indreptau spre Siria,Palestina ,Arabia.

Sapaturile recente au descoperit o asezare Caleolithic datand aprox.din 4500i.Hr…pe un deal la poalele muntelui Rum,se afla templul Allat initial construit de tribul  Ad si remodelat ulterior de Nabateeni in sec I.i.en.care au fondat si satul de la nord-vest de templu si un complex de baie.La poalele stancilor de pe ambele parti ale vaii,in constructiile antice se gasesc inscriptii thamudice care confirma implicarea pre-islam-ului a triburilor,in constructia sanctuarului.In timpul revoltei arabe impotriva imperiului otoman Wadi Rum a fost sediul central al printului Feisal bin Hussein si T.Lawrence.(in primul razboi mondial)

Muntii care au culoarea inchisa spre negru detin metale,diferite minereuri si se spune mult aur…(Asta imi aminteste de versurile romanesti “Muntii nostri aur poarta…”acelasi lucru si pe aici…

Wadi Rum-zona protejata …UNESCO

Melodia exprima dragostea oamenilor locului pentru Wadi Rum

DACA NU STIAI…

Citeam despre plante medicinale si efectele lor… am gasit scris ca ,plantele de la poalele dealurilor din Himalaya sunt considerate a fi cele mai pure    datorita faptului ca aceasta zona a ramas o parte a lumii mai putin vizitata,  si nepoluata…(dupa Antarctica.)..Ma  gandeam cum se ajunge acolo …

Calatoria in Himalaya incepe din Nepal(un stat in sudul Asiei,situat la cea mai inalta altitudine,in inima muntilor Himalaya,intre India si China.)Este cunoscut ca si Acoperisul Lumii ,deoarece Everestul,cel mai inalt munte din lume se afla in Nepal…se spune ca este locul unde” Pamantul intalneste Cerul”.Nepalul are mai mult de 200 de munti peste 6000m inaltime…varfurile lor sunt permanent acoperite cu gheata.Am pus o harta cu cei mai importanti munti din Nepal

Everest 8849m

Kanchenjunga 8586m

Lhotse 8511m

Makalu 8463m

Cho Oyu8201m

Dhaulagiri 8167m

Manaslu 8163m

Annapurna 8091m

Si multi altii…Ma intreb cum traiesc nepalezii acolo in  Himalaya( denumit si regele muntilor)?

Cred ca au o viata foarte interesanta acolo in inima muntilor,in aerul curat, pe inaltimi unde doar vulturii se-avanta…

As vrea sa ajung acolo pentru plantele medicinale miraculoase …dupa cum arata harta…cam greu…

Orientul Mijlociu ,este o parte a lumii care are o anumita atractie pentru cei nascuti in Occident

Iata cateva locuri din Iordania:

In tarisoara asta mica sunt multe locuri interesante care merita vizitate…am postat aici cateva ( mai ales pentru mama mea pe care vreau sa o aduc aici intr-o vacanta ;ea are 71 de ani si familia nu prea este de acord…poate ii conving…)

 Aqaba,este singurul port la Marea Rosie in Iordania.Marea este renumita pentru varietatea de pesti multicolori ,deosebit de frumosi,Ei pot fi admirati din barcile cu fundul de sticla ,special confectionate  care se ofera pentru ca turistii sa admire marea inauntrul ei.Vara este foarte cald,cea mai indicata perioada de a se duce la marea este aceea de toamna sau primavara.Noaptea decorul este mirific.Am fost şi noi acolo…
