Kichu Lakhang, Paro
(4.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Turn a prayer wheel at Kichu Lakhang, one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Bhutan. Originally built in the 7th century, it was one of the 108 temples made to pin down a giant legendary ogress who was preventing the spread of Buddhism. Numerous prayer wheels with colorful ornaments and butter-lit lamps decorate the inner courtyard, where you can observe elderly pilgrims spinning them. A quiet and peaceful place, the temple has simple architecture housing a collection of 11 Buddha statues. Two orange trees in the courtyard are believed to bear fruit throughout the year. By using our Paro trip itinerary maker, you can arrange your visit to Kichu Lakhang and other attractions in Paro.
