Dzongdrakha Temple, Paro
(4.8/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Admire an impressive masterpiece of Bhutanese architecture at Dzongdrakha Temple, a complex made up of four shrines perched on a cliff overlooking terraced fields. With massive walls painted white with orange ocher lining in the upper decks, the temple complex features well-preserved paintings and colorful murals depicting Wheel of Life and scenes from the life of Buddha. An integral part of this scenic complex is a footbridge across Paro River which connects two white towers, now on the tentative list of World Heritage Sites. Observe monks chanting and performing their daily chores. Be prepared to show some ID if you are not visiting with a guide. A visit to Dzongdrakha Temple represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Paro trip generator to plot your vacation.

  • It is a temple complex located in the South from the town of Palo. In the 14th century it was Temple gmpo Dorji. Four temple has been built on the side of a mountain cliff. From under 200 m, guide me, reached by scrambling over steep cliffs was told 30 minutes hiking is from your. Good views from the top, it was like a mini taktsang monastery. Please note, most of the photographs, in the post is another place.

  • Also this building belongs to the history of Bhutan. If you have multiple days are in Bhutan then this is a must. Are you there but 2 days then you can skip

  • Exciting insights into the Buddhist religion. Must certainly be seen if one is in Paro. It must be said that it is a must.
