Nestled atop a hill overlooking the enchanting Thimphu Valley, Changangkha Lhakhang exudes a serene and spiritual ambiance that captivates the soul. Steeped in Bhutanese history and culture, this sacred temple offers a profound sense of tranquility to all who visit. Its ornate architecture, adorned with intricate carvings and colorful prayer flags, reflects the rich traditions of Buddhism. As you wander through the prayer halls and courtyard, the scent of incense permeates the air, inviting contemplation and reflection. Whether seeking solace or simply marveling at its beauty, Changangkha Lhakhang is a sanctuary where one can connect with the divine and find inner peace.

We arrived at this temple after a two-hour hike from the Buddha Dordema statue. Our guide explained us everything about this temple.
In the courtyard of the temple there is a smaller hall for worshiping the protective deities, where the local believers light the butter lamps. In the main part of the temple there is a beautiful place of worship, where you can see the statues of many deities of Lamaist Buddhism. Only the local men can enter the space in front of the place of worship, while the local women and other visitors can stand behind the partition and thus observe the deities. There are the praying wheels around the main building in the temple complex, which of course we wanted to turn all of them clockwise. There is also a beautiful legend associated with this temple, which we do not want to reveal to you, because this temple must be visited.

The monastery on a hill is the most empathetic place I have ever been. The golden statue of the Buddhist god of compassion is so beautiful and the children who are born in the capital get their names from here. I am so blessed to have been able to experience this place and I know that the people who live here are very lucky to have such a beautiful place to call home.

This place is must visit for me at least once in a year to make offering and seek blessings from the local local deity as I was born in and brought up in Thimphu. Almost all kids who are born in Thimphu and was brought here after 3 days of birth by their parents have to do the same. Am Sure everyone will understand why is it so?

But for Tourist if your are spiritual and is seeking blessings can always visit.
Dont forget to carry your Kabney and Rachu if your are bhutanese. Foreigners i think its exceptional.

Changangkha Lhakhang is one of the oldest Lhakhang in Bhutan and its a wish-fulfilling temple. Its 5 minutes walk from the main road. One can feel the fresh air and see the magnificent view from that point.
