Taktse Lhakhang

Location : Trongsa

The two-storey temple was built in traditional Bhutanese architectural forms with extensive woodworks and stones. The courtyard is enclosed by the residence of the Lama and other rooms.

The temple serves as the community temple for rituals and also hosts two main events. The main event is the recitation of the holy scriptures in the 1st month of Bhutanese calendar for five days, performed by lay practitioners (gomchens). During the recitation of holy scriptures local people serve the three meals in routine base.

The second event is performance of the Nyungne (snyung gnas) ceremony for three days by members of the nearby communities; local villagers of Taktse, Yuesa and Tashi Dingkha take turns to serve the necessary meals.
