Jangsarbu Lhakhang, Paro Overview

Home to Sakyamuni Buddha, a statue that was carried from Lhasa Tibet, Jangsarbu Lhakhang is one among the smallest monasteries in Bhutan. It is located right behind Paro Dzong, which was initially supposed to safe keep the Buddha's statue. As the legend goes, the statue was only kept overnight at Jangsarbu Lhakhang. However, while they tried to move it to its original Lhakhang, it didn't budge. It proved impossible to lift the statue; hence, it became a permanent attraction of the temple. It is a three-storey monastery with painting and sculptures of Buddhas. Different from other monasteries in a sense that it is entirely dark within, you need to carry torchlights with you to see the unique relics and artwork.
