Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten, Punakha

(4.8/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten sits high above Punakha Valley, affording panoramic views of the verdant hillsides below. The four-storey temple remains a worthy example of the country's traditional architecture and artistic techniques. You'll have to hike for roughly an hour from the parking at the base of the hill, so be sure to bring plenty of water and a picnic to enjoy in the temple's picturesque hilltop garden. Our Punakha vacation route planner makes visiting Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten and other Punakha attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Hike to the monastery is challenging and it takes about 40 mins hike up the steep. From the monastery you get the beautiful aerial view of the Punakha valley, Yibesa village and colorful rice field. From the monastery you can either return to the road or take a further hike to Jiligang and then descend to Punkha where you will see a confluence of famous me and female river of Punakha.
  • Beautiful temple in punakha, Bhutan
  • Khamsum Yulley Namgyal 紀念碑。從普納卡市中心開車約40分鐘,轉入小路後抵達一處約有三間平房的小村庄,接著經過一座吊橋並走過45分鐘的蜿蜒稻田小徑,一路輕鬆爬登便可抵達Khamsum Yulley Namgyal 紀念碑。 在20世紀90年代,不丹第三世王后 Ashi Tshering Yangdon Wangchuk 決定修建一個紀念碑來為不丹祈福,保祐其子民與一切有情眾生。而其真實目的是為了保護太子,保證皇室的安全以實現不丹的繁榮,後來選擇了這個地點進行建造。整個工程歷時八年半。 這座具有四層樓的紀念碑的興建方式特別在於,其建築設計細節都取自於佛經,而非技術類書籍。 站在紀念塔上可展望整個 Punakha 山谷,將一切的美景盡收眼底;來到此處的心情無比雀躍,不丹真不愧是人間最後一片淨土。
