Dungtse Lhakhang, Paro Overview

Built in the early 15th century, Dumtse Lhakhang provides with an in-depth knowledge of Buddhism to its visitors. It is located between the valleys of Dopshari and Paro and is in the form of a Chorten which is quite rare and exceptional in Bhutan. The monastery contains a few beautiful Buddhist iconographies and paintings. Initially constructed by Thangton Gyelpo in 1421, to subdue an evil spirit, it is a three-storey temple, with each storey representing hell, earth and heaven respectively. It was then restored in 1841 by the 25rg head Abbot of Bhutan. Fascinating travellers with its rich history and intriguing architecture, Dumtse Lhakhang is a must-visit site in Paro.
