Taung Kalat

Taung Kalat is a Buddhist monastery build on top of a tall volcanic plug in Burma. Although monks no longer live there, the site is considered to be the home of 37 Nats, or Buddhist spirits. It is also home to a large troop of feral monkeys. To get there, you must climb 777 steps, which you can see in pictures at Kuriositas, along with closer looks at the architecture and the gorgeous view from the top. Link -via the Presurfer
