Seeing it in the thumbnail, I thought at first it was the Taktsang Monastery in Bhutan, there is a certain similarity. Opening it up, of course, the difference is clear, and a beautiful scene it is.

This is a very nice shot.

I especially like the fact theres a person standing in front of the church, about to enter. Exposure os quite good as is detail.

I notice you manually used a white balance thats made the image quite blue, which is the opposite of the colour of sunlight, so I tried a warmer white balance in the mod I uploaded.
I also brightened the exposure of the church area only, just a little, and this I think makes the image come alive a little more.

What do you think?

Welcome from me, too.

I don't have a lot ot add to Willie's comments - you've picked an excellent viewpoint, though the white balance is a little blue.

The one thing that could make a very big difference to this is the time of day, and the lighting. The colour, direction and brightness of the light all make a big difference: many landscape photograpehrs choose to shoot mainly during the 'Golden Hour' - either the first hour after sunrise, or the last hour before sunset.

This is really hard to do if you are touring: and obviously, the fact that this is set against a cliff means that there are times when there may be no direct sunlight at all.

But if you can arrange to be there with golden light on the building, that's the way to do it.

The white balance is all I'd change here.
Composition is good, though an alternative would be to use a longer focal length, if you had one available, to go in closer and emphasise how close in to the cliffs the buildings are. Always consider alternatives.

A very nice pictorial record. I struggled to find the figure! It is a touch blue, mountain lighting. Easy to warm up in software if you feel the need.
