One of the oldest temple in Bhutan. When we get there, there was an praying event going on. It was very cool to witness and listen to the stories.

Exquisite architecture, elaborate carvings, and vibrant murals.
The temple is a significant spiritual and cultural site, and it's not surprising that many people find it to be a peaceful and uplifting place.

A 1,300 years old temple that is worth a 20-30mins visit. Interesting to observe the praying rituals and meditate inside the temple.

Kyichu Lhakhang is one of the oldest Buddhist Temples in Bhutan (if not the oldest) and it is considered to be a prime example of the ornate Bhutanese architecture. It has been said that this Temple had been constructed back in the 7th century and that the original Temple complex was much smaller in size back then. However, over the years, this Temple has grown much larger in size with the help of several notable Buddhist leaders.
This Temple is located on a hillside with nice views of Paro Valley and the surrounding mountains. The Temple grounds and buildings appear well maintained here and there is a "quiet and peaceful" atmosphere here. Very nice Temple to visit while in Paro.

This temple dates back to the 7th century, CE, originally built by a Tibetan King who was promoting Buddhism in what is now Bhutan. Interesting place, it was our first introduction to Buddhist temples in Bhutan. If you are spending time in Paro, it is worth a visit.

This visit is more of a historical and spiritual value. It is more compact than most other temple, but offered perhaps more history, culture and tradition.

Let your guide tell you the story of the 108 temples! This is one of the older temples we visited (dating from the 7th century), the courtyard is beautiful, full of flowers, and the interior is serene, with weathered flooring where generations of faithful have performed their prostrations. Immerse yourself in the silence, spin some of the many prayer wheels and you are ready for a great Bhutanese experience.

This is a Buddhist temple and has a large complex to walk around. You can visit the small temples inside, spin prayer wheels and feel a lovely sense of calm

Old Buddhist temple with a rich heritage and narrative behind it. There is an entry fee and visiting hours are restricted. You should visit with a guide who can explain the history behind it. Worth a visit.
