Kichu Lakhang, Paro

(4.1/5 based on 160 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.

  • Wide rice field's middle Lacan among Bhutan's first Temple in the middle of May. It seems to temple was built in part to contain the power of the witch legend in his left leg. Only up to the courtyard without foreign tourists in the past but it did not enter the main hall inside the current turn in the main hall. There are statues and beautiful Bhutan one of Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche-jewel master), lined with old and new 2 Temple back Shindo told Buddhist Himalayan region. Rare Buddha statues us Crown in the main hall, multiple juichimen Kannon statues of Maitreya was enshrined. Many Buddhist temple scale is like a small temple in the village, there is elaborate and spectacular. Cylinder painted Scripture on the updraft of the lantern and burning butter oil is slowly around the mysterious atmosphere. And so the Bhutanese sacred power spot that wearing all year round fruit trees in the garden.
