The Lhakhang was built in a location selected by Lama Phajo Drukgom Shigpo, one of the most significant religious figures in Bhutanese history, perhaps in the 12th century. The 800-year-old temple is visited by a large number of locals daily. It is a vital component of the neighborhood and is deeply ingrained in the native culture and customs. There are wonderful prayer bells outside the temple that are written in black and gold manuscripts. It is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Thimphu, with two exquisitely inserted massive prayer wheels that add to its beauty.
The temple’s trail, which is also known as the “back kora,” provides a magnificent view of the town’s swarm everywhere. When locals go on the pilgrimage, they do back to kora. At dusk, the residents of the town can be seen looping around the temple, enjoying the sunset.
