The Changangkha Lhakhang is an ancient temple situated at a distance of around 1 km from the downtown Thimpu. The temple was built in the 12th Century on a site which was chosen by the founder of the Drukpa Lineage in Bhutan, Phajo Drukgom Shigpo. This one is a traditional Bhutanese monastery which is miraculously suspended like a castle on a ridge over the central Thimpu mountain ranges.
This ancient temple has large prayer wheels along with incredibly huge Tibetan texts and very fine interior murals. Tamdrin is the protector deity of this temple and people from Thimpu visit this place to name their newborn babies, as it is considered to be the spiritual home for the children who are born in the Chang valley.
The temple opens for the visitors quite early in the morning and entry is prohibited after dark. The best time to visit the monastery is right after the sunrise, and during this time, one can specifically avoid crowds and also experience the most picturesque views from its courtyard.
