Sometimes the most amazing places are literally just a few steps from your backyard. Yet it is so easy to overlook or ignore them, just because you don’t expect anything extraordinary close to your regular living space. Or you miss to visit them because you […]

These photos were taken last year around January. The place is close to the village Tar, Hungary. This stupa is called “Béke” (peace) stupa and built in-memorial of Kőrösi Csoma Sándor,also known as Alexander Csoma de Kőrös.

According to Wikipedia he was a Hungarian philologist and orientalist, author of the first Tibetan-English dictionary and grammar book. He was born in Kőrös, Grand Principality of Transylvania (today Chiuruş, Romania).

Anyway, I am probably not the right person to describe this sight historically neither theologically, but it was a wonderful experience and we could really smell a special religious atmosphere.
There were a Fantastic sunshine and clear deep blue sky although the air was a bit chilly plus of course the stupa which indeed looks extraordinary. I hope the photos will explain better what do I mean.

If I made you interested about this stupa, have a look at this link.

Gear

I used my Pentacon Six TL and most likely the standard 80mm f/2.8 Biometar and some Kodak Ektachrome 100 slide film. This was my first and so far only trial on this film. I would love to get some more of it though. I have used my Ricoh GR Digital digital compact as light-meter.
