I visited Bhutan (Thimpu and Paro) in Jan 2017.
We went there in the morning and there was very few people. This place was built by cutting a hill/mountain and gives a good view of Thimpu city. Since we couldn't go inside we had to just listen to our guide who explained how it was built and he said there are many small buddha statues inside it. The outer statue is huge and looks great! We spent around half an hour and took lots of pictures :D I got a chance to make good use of the 70-300mm lens.

This Buddha statue perched high amongst mountains, gilded with gold, is one of the largest statues of Buddha in the world. Truly awe inspiring. Adjacent to it is one of the best walking trails you would have ever encountered.... Along the ridges of the mountains with breathtaking views of the quaint Bhutanese towns below & the nature & rivulets around you. ENJOY !!!
