Dra Karpo, Paro Overview

One of the many sacred monasteries in Paro is Dra Karpo which means splitting of rock. Guru Rinpoche is said to have meditated at this temple, where you'd find a huge stone which had been shifted from the mountainside to the altar room. One of the highlights of the place are the footprints imprinted on the rocks. It is believed that Guru Rinpoche split a rock into pieces, revealing an evil spirit hiding in it. The legends say that taking 108 rounds around the monastery in a clockwise direction can help cleanse one's sins. Apart from being a religious shrine full of faith, it offers a great view of the surrounding valleys. It takes around 2 hours of hike to reach the temple top.
