The best and must visit place of thimphu city. A very tall sitting budhha statue made this place awesome. This statue is visible from almost every place of thimphu. Clearly visible from thimphu dzong. Lovely place with nice architecture and different budhha statue. The place is still under construction but main part is ready for visitors. This place is basically a temple and much more beautiful from inside than outside. All golden paints and shades inside made it simply wonderful. Use of camera inside is prohibited.

Very impressive statue, still under construction...the visit with a good guide gives you a good insight into the spirituality of Bhutan buddhism. Beautiful view over Timphu valley. Make sure to wear sunglasses and sun protection...

One Visit by default. It is on the itinerary of all tour operators. Magnificent and amazing Buddha Statue. Some part of the monument is work in progress and there is construction going on.

Spectacular view from up there. Very well maintained. You can meditate inside the temple. Really felt at peace. Very touristy place though. No commercial shops.
