Want so bad!
#6 Looks like the Gerudo Fortress from Ocarina. Well I'm a nerd…
dude, spot on lol.
Yeah well, my apartment has it's own washer and dryer.
Yeah well, my apartment has its own elevator.
It is quite remarkable to think about the labor that went into creating these architectural wonders.
Are they warm in the winter? Electricity, dozens of fireplaces? Coal?
I can only imagine what the winter winds must be like in some of these places.
I thought for sure that Pueblo, Colorado would be up here, those things are badass.
its 45 degrees and i am freezing i am a pussy
Lots of time and dedication went into building those structures. Beautiful works of art made by hand.
i couldnt help but think zombie hideouts
mountain temples are for lazy people who cant be arsed to build a whole building
Because carving a building from pure rock on a cliffside is WAY easier! =P
You forgot Minas Tirith. Not real but still cool
Where's the meteora in Greece?
#3 #8 are both monastery's in Meteora.
Yep! Hope you had a nice time
You forgot Manastir Ostrog in Montenegro !!!
Petra (Jordan) is not a monastery but ruins of an extinct civilization. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petra
Originally it was a Nabatean tomb. It was repurposed during the Crusades by monks as a Monestary but that was a relitavly short period of time. Paul you get the history award for the day.
What about Machu Picchu?
#15 & #16 is a lost as some have speculated abandoned city. I've always found this beautiful and would love to visit someday. Chive should do a post on lost cities of the world. Pretty fascinating stuff.
I second that.
probly wont work, only got mouth herps to wurry bout
Montserrat in Spain is quite an amazing place too, being there is unreal. Religious or not these structures are amazing accomplishments
How about Ostrog, Montenegro?
OK, Greece, you win.
Where is the Western Air Temple?
#16 – hey, indiana jones and the last crusade?
when i read the title, i honestly thought it was gonna be boobs
#15 and #16 are the treasury building in Petra. It's not a monastery.
true it's a grave
I was kinda pissed when the Temple of the Moon on Huayna Picchu (near Machu Picchu) in Peru didn't get mentioned…so beautiful
