get AWS Region in Cloudformation template

Today, I was creating a Cloudformation template to create a private hosted zone in Route53 and it made me confusion for a while so I thought this information could be helpful for other people as well.

Following is the template snippet that can use used to assign a Region to the required property. This snippet will automatically pick up the region where the template is deployed.
