The statue is constructed out of bronze and is studded with many semi-precious stones. Since there were no factories in the country to make such a large bronze cast structure, the statue was manufactured in China. The pieces were brought to Bhutan and assembled here.

Motithang Takin Preserve

The Motithang Takin Preserve is also known as the Thimphu Zoo. It is a small natural preserve for the Takin, Bhutan’s national animal. It was originally a mini zoo, but later on, it was converted into the preservation of the Takin. The mini zoo contained a small number of Takin but the King of Bhutan later decreed that it was improper for a Buddhist nation to keep an animal in captivity. 

Changangkha Lhakhang

This popular temple, perched like a fortress on a ridge above central Thimphu, hums with pilgrim activity. It was established in the 12th century on a site chosen by Lama Phajo Drugom Zhigpo, who came from Ralung in Tibet. Parents traditionally come here to get auspicious names for their newborns or blessings for their young children from the protector deity Tamdrin (to the left in the grilled inner sanctum). Children are blessed by a phurba (ritual dagger) and given a sacred thread.

Paro Sightseeing

After early morning breakfast, we will take you for a morning hike up to Taktsang Monastery, also known as ‘Tiger’s Nest’.

Tiger’s Nest Monastery

Kyichu Lhakhang

Built in 659 by Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo, Kyichu Lhakhang is the oldest surviving temple of Bhutan. It is located on the north of Paro. Ornamented temples reflect the 7th century architecture and decoration. The temple’s construction was done overnight. This was initially small in size but after multiple visits over the years by the Buddhist saints, the temple expanded both in grandeur and size. The prominent Buddhist saints Phajo Drugom Zhigpo, Lam Kha Nga and Guru Rinpoche and much more aid in the expansion of the temple.
