Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup Nunnery, Punakha Overview

Overlooking Punakha, Wangduephodrang and Toebesa Valleys, Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup Nunnery is a temple as well as a nunnery perched over a ridge. Initially, the complex had 41 nuns with 70 rooms but now it houses over a hundred nuns. With a 14-foot bronze statue of Avalokiteshvara and few other bronze statues, the nunnery was consecrated by his holiness Je Khenpo. The Lhakhang (temple) is double storied with a chorten resembling Boudhanath stupa of Nepal with black carved marble blocks surrounding it. It's a great place to meditate and catch the mesmerising view of Punakha Valley.
