Khurje Lhakhang, Jakar Overview

Located by a mountain river, Khurje Lhakhang consists 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 most holy. Another temple was constructed on the site where Guru Rinpoche had meditated. The third was constructed by the Queen Mother Ashi Kesang. The three temples are also surrounded by a 108 chorten wall. The Kurjey Lhakhang is where the festival of Kurjey Tshechu takes place in Summer. Zangtopelri Lhakhang is a short walk from Kuje Lhakhang and which houses a two story high mandala representing Guru Rinpoche's Copper Colored Mountain which is further 5 minutes away from a holy spring (Kurjey Drupchhu).

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.
