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 Buddhist temple is a bit different to your standard Bhutan temple, as it has some very specific feeling a bit less colourful and festive and more spiritual and mysterious. As it is on the way to the Dzong and the museum it is worth...More

I liked this chorten as it is one without electricity. You can climb up three dark levels and appreciate the holy relics at each stage.
