Mystery Mountain village

Challenge #14 in the Nature and Culture series. Hosted by AndrePooh.
Challenge has finished
show us a "Mystery" village in the mountains. The idea is that others should try and guess which village it is. It's a game but photographic artistic quality prevails. The priority is the photo challenge. Show enough characterisk features of the village so that it is recognisable. Give your photo the title "Mountain Village" and don't tell where it is. Obviously you may give a hint or clue in the description to help finding it, but do not give away the name.

Enlarge to find building before speed voting please! Remember this is a "Mystery" challenge, not an obvious "in your face" challenge. The "village" is incorporated in a massive single structure yet appears minute in this perspective.
