Located at 3 hours uphill trek from Thimphu, Phajoding Monastery is one of the most peaceful sites in Bhutan. Currently, it is a residence for around 30 monks, all of whom are very friendly to talk to. Built in 13th century, the architecture of this monastery is simple, yet attractive. It is best visited for the spectacular view of Thimphu which it provides.
In earlier times, Phajoding Monastery was one of the richest and most beautiful monasteries in the world. Even now, when after many more monasteries have been built in the country, the elegance and splendour of Phajoding Monastery have not faded a bit. Known as the "current of compassion", it is one of the most sacred sites in the country.
