Built more than half a century ago, Zilukha Nunnery is also known as Druthob Goemba. Housing around 60 nuns in its premises, a visit to the site energizes the soul because of its peaceful surroundings, which lures one's mind to never leave the site. From here, the spectacular view of Tashichho Dzong can be captured in a camera to make for a beautiful photo album.
Also known as the Thangthong Dewachen Nunnery, the Zilukha Nunnery is the biggest nunnery in Bhutan. The interactive session with nuns is very informative. It is a good experience to know about their lifestyle from themselves. Knowing about their experiences, beliefs and education is quite a fun activity. An enclosed chorten in the courtyard is very beautiful.
The Zilukha Nunnery was founded in 15th century by Drubthob Chakzampa, the later reincarnation of Druthob Thangtong Gyalpo. Known as the "Father of Tibetan Opera", he was most popularly known for constructing iron bridges. The Zilukha Nunnery is also known as the Druthob Goemba.
