Lhakhang Karpo

Location : Haa

Lhakhang Karpo, or the White Temple, in Üsu Gewog, is believed to have originally been established in the 7th century during the time of the Tibetan Emperor Songtsän Gampo. It is located near the main road less than a kilometre south of Wangchuck Lhodzong. This temple usually houses the monastic assembly of Haa.

In 2011, Lhakang Karpo underwent extensive restoration and re-construction. The monks quarters surrounding the main temple were completely completely rebuilt.
