Exploring this serene house, with Buddhist paintings and statues preserved inside in the dark, was an interesting experience. The best thing is there aren't many tourists, you basically have the place to yourself.

This is on the way to Tiger's Nest. The best part of this place is the floral trees. While, violet, blue coloured tress are very attractive at this place.
