Dechenphu Lhakhang

Location : Thimphu Rating :

Archers seek his assistance to win tournaments. Children pray to him to get through exams. The sick pray to him for recovery. Officials go to him for a successful seminar. Farmers ask him for rain. If Bhutan went to war, the soldiers would pray to him for victory

Gyenyen Jagpa Milen, the revered protector deity of the 13th century Dechenphu (cave of consummate bliss) lhakhang, that sits at the north end of the Thimphu valley, is one of the most important spiritual guardians of the Bhutanese people

Not to be missed if you're in Thimphu

This is one of my favourite temples and I highly reccommend this to anyone who is in the Thimphu area and has some time on their hands. The temple is about a 25 minute drive from the Thimphu city center and is located in a beautifully wooded section of upper Thimphu valley. I am not sure how it is now but in those days, vehiculars roads did not make it all the way to the temple; people would have to hike for about an hour once they got out of their cars. The hike is through a beauifully wooded pine forest and which serves as a good area for picnic.
