Kurjey Lhakhang, Bumthang Overview

Located in the Bumthang Valley by a mountain river, Khurje Lhakhang is a temple complex consisting of three beautiful temples. The oldest temple contains the rock which has the imprint of Guru Rinpoche's body and hence is considered to be the holiest. Another temple was constructed on the site where Guru Rinpoche had meditated. The Queen Mother Ashi Kesang built the third. A 108 chorten wall also surrounds the three temples. The Kurjey Lhakhang is where the festival of Kurjey Tshechu takes place in Summer.

(A word of caution: Tourists are expected to dress respectably and modestly while visiting temples and other religious institutions. Shoulders must also be covered inside religious establishments. Since shoes are to be removed before entering a religious building, it is advisable to wear socks. Photography may also not be allowed at all places. It is advisable to ask the authorities beforehand).
