More Those Crazy Monks [via Nina Reznick]

The Hanging Temple or Hanging Monastery in China.

Built into a cliff (75 m or 246 ft above the ground) in Shanxi province , the Hanging Monastery was built more than 1,500 years ago.
The temple was constructed by drilling holes into the cliff side and inserting crossbeams halfway to serve as the foundation.  How did they do this 1,500 years ago?


If you look carefully above, you will see somebody walking on this uninviting stairway.
