4.5/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web
One of the oldest Buddhist temples in the region, Changangkha Lhakhang contains intricate internal murals and a statue of Chenrizig, an 11-headed, thousand-armed expression of Avolokitesawara. Built in the 12th century, the temple boasts gold and black prayer wheels and unusually large sacred scriptures. Look for the resident astrologer on the site, who will consider your birth date against various star charts and offer a prayer flag that will benefit you specifically (sold for a nominal fee).

  • There are some neat paintings within the monastery. Go for the drive. nothing else to do. carry your food for the way. 
  • This oldest temple in Thimphu gave me inner peace even though it is a place where parents bring their new born here in seeking a name and blessing. 
  • Small temple is located a little mountain from Thimphu. 11 statues and? this would be worshipping. If 供etara Offertory "holy water" was put in the Palm of your hand. Wasn't drank was accompanied by Guide-laden mouth, in clear water. I wonder what.
