Once in a while, you just need to zen out on holiday. This week we're ditching the fast life to show you our softer side. Pretty views and incredible culture coincide at these Top 5 scenic temples from around the globe!

1) Monasteries in Meteora

Meteora, Greece is characterized by tall monolithic pillars that tower over the small town of Kalambaka. 

But that's not all. Perched atop some of the pillars are beautiful monasteries dating back to the 14th-century. Only 6 of the original 24 buildings have survived over the years. 

This is our kinda greek life, thanks, @dariapyka!

2) Candi Prambanan Temple

Said to be the most beautiful Hindu temple out there, this intricate ode to Shiva is located on Java Island, Indonesia.

The temple is rather old, dating back to the 9th-century and stands at over 150-feet tall. 

Terima kasih for this Stamp, @travelgraziola!

Hello, Romania! 

The scenic Bursana Monastery is located in the Bursana Village in Maramures. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is famed for the signature wooden church that tops 57-meters in height, making it one of the tallest in all of Romania. 

You're giving us temple mania, @lauramusuroaea

4) Pura Taman Ayun Temple

Taman Ayun translates into "beautiful garden" - fitting since these cool temples are housed in a verdant park near Mengwi Village. 

The temples are only located 8-kilometers south of Bali, Indonesia's capital city, Ubud. 

These temples are too cool, @travelgraziola! Thanks for sharing your Stamp!

5) Boudhanath Stupa

There are few better places to get a true glimpse into traditional Tibetan life than here at the Boudhanath Stupa in Katmandu, Nepal. 

Not only is it the largest stupa in Asia, but it is commonly flooded with pilgrims who have come here to make a kora - a circling of the dome under the watchful eye of the Buddha.
