  • Compared to other monasteries not an impressive building and home. Image of Padmasambhava concealed behind a record.

  • The little temple on the right shelters the imprint of Padmasambava.. On the hill behind the miraculous source of holy water.. 
  • Visit this sacred for Buddhists and very picturesque place you shouldn't miss in any case! Walking when the weather best through the fields and meadows there. Is one of the most rewarding places that you can look into the heart of Bhutan.
