Jangtsa Dumgtseg Lhakhang [zlum brtshegs lha khang] is a Buddhist temple in western Bhutan. The temple is notable as it is in the form of a chorten, very rare in Bhutan. It is located on the edge of a hill between the Paro valley and the Dopchari valley, across the bridge from Paro. The Buddhist iconography depicted in the Chorten is considered a unique repository of the Drukpa Kagyu school.

This temple has been built to subdue negative forces that lived in the area discovered by Lama Chagzampa Thangtong Gyalpo around 12th century if i am not wrong. After this was built then the place is said to have become good enough for people to reside in and around the temple mainly Tsongdue ... The main town area.

Jangtsa Dumtseg Lhakhang is one of the many wonderful Buddhist monasteries in Paro, Bhutan, located up on the hills with a great view of Paro. The monastery is very well maintained and is richly decorated with painted woodcarvings and statues.

This temple is rare in that it has been built in the form of a chorten. When we were here we could only look at it from the outside as it is undergoing renovations. Oddly when we were there there was smoke coming from it.

Just 2 mins walk from the bridge across the river, amidst the beautiful paddy fields this temple offers a simple but beautiful experience of a Buddhist temple. Definitely worth an hours visit!

A small and significant Temple that requires special permit to visit. There are three floors inside the Temple, visitors need to be careful, as there is not much lighting inside. At present, it undergoes renovation; but still good to visit.

It is a great temple to visit. However, when i visit it last month, it was under renovation. Seems that they would take time for the renovation to complete. Maybe i wouldn't suggest it on the itinerary for 2018.

This temple has cone in shape and is never found in any other places. Mashasida Thangthong Gyelpo had built this temple to tame the harmful naga devils spread in Himalayas. The inner paintings have very powerful images of wrathful buddhas.

This is a very small, out of the way temple in Paro. It is hundreds of years old and holds amazing wall frescoes & murals. The inside is almost without lighting; use your phone flashlight to see the paintings. The building and grounds are in need of repair but this is definitely worth spending 1/2 hour to visit.
