  • Great and piece full
  • Awesome Place, pretty interesting story behind the monastery. Located in Central Bhutan, in the famous Phobjhikha Valley, which is famous for Black Necked Cranes, in the Wangdue Phodrang district, is a must visit place. This place is famous for Tantric Buddhism. Must visit, especially during winters.
  • Place not to missed while in Bhutan 👍👍👍
  • The seat of Gangteng trulkus
