Tango Buddhist Institute, Thimphu

(65+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Built into the steep, rugged crags of the Thimpu Valley, Tango Buddhist Institute features impressive architecture adorned with ornate artworks. The site was established between the 12th and 13th centuries on what a local legend claims was a holy location in which Avalokiteshvara revealed himself as "the self-emanated form of the Wrathful Hayagriva." You'll see countless Buddhist artifacts and relics here, including a statue of the Buddha made in gold and copper.
