Golden Prayer Wheel  

Large golden prayer wheel in the doorway to Guru Padmakara's sacred cave at Tiger's Nest. There was an impressive temple in front of the cave that the monks were decorating for the dedication. Against the back wall was a barred door into the cave of meditative attainment where Guru Padmakara stayed in retreat for 3 months. At the cave entrance is a rock with imprints of the sun, moon and the guru's thumb.
