Tourist Place Near to Chukkha


Kyichu Lhakhang

Kyichu Lhakhang is a Buddhist temple in Paro. It is one of the oldest monasteries in the country built in the 7th century by the Tibetan King Songsten Gampo. The story goes that a giant demoness lay across the whole area of Tibet and the Himalayas and was preventing the spread of Buddhism.
To overcome her, King Songtsen Gampo decided to build 108 temples, which would be placed on all the points of her body. Of these 108 temples, 12 were built by precise plans.
Thus, it happened that in about the year AD 638 the temple of Jokhang in Lhasa was built in the very heart of the demoness. This is one of the oldest monasteries in Paro district. There’s a belief that the two orange trees here in Kyichu Lakhang bears fruit throughout the year.

Chimi Lhakhang

The Chimi Lhakhang Monastery calls for at least one visit when in Punakha. This extraordinary temple is popularly known to be the fertility temple among many and is frequented by childless couples and others alike for blessings. Built in the 15th century by Lama Drukpa Kunley who was popularly known as the ‘Divine Madman’, the temple has a rollicking tale to tell. The Tantric Buddhist saint is revered both in Tibet and in Bhutan, and known for his crazy wisdom. He is believed to have worshipped the phallus and sought to encourage monks to look above conventional morality, even in ancient days. Tales of his unorthodox methods of teaching are popular throughout town, and it is common to come across houses with paintings of phalluses on their walls for good luck.

Membartsho or Burning Lake

Mebar Tsho (or The Burning Lake) is located in the southern part of the Tang Valley. It takes 30 minutes to reach there from Chamkhar town. Mebar Tsho more a gorge than a lake. It is a very sacred site and the name refers to the most famous episode of the famous treasure discoverer, Pema Lingpa’s life.
In the early 1475 the saint discovered holy relics hidden here by Guru Rinpoche and thus received his holy mission to propagate religion. To silence skeptical minds, he plunged into the river with a burning lamp and declared: “If I am a demon, I shall die! If I am not, and I am the true spiritual son of Guru Rinpoche, this lamp will continue to burn and I will recover hidden treasures!” That happened, and the place took the name of the Burning Lake. Devout Bhutanese always send a little lamp floating on the water and make a wish.
It is still believed today that people with less sins and spiritual minds are able to distinguish an extraordinary sight in the lake while looking down from a rock overlooking it. At the entrance to the lake is the image of Pema Lingpa along with his two sons carved out on to a rock.

Chorten

A 'chorten' is a type of pagoda peculiar to the Himalayas.They are built to commemorate dead monks and to ward off evil influences from places deemed 'thresholds', such as strategic points in mountains or the confluence of rivers (or roads).Chorten in Bhutan come in three varieties: a square surmounted by a pyramid, a farmhouse-like roof variety, and an 'eye' type like those found in Nepal (see Kathmandu, Nepal on this website for examples).Chortens are often surrounded by prayer flags, which 'release' a prayer to the wind with every flap.

Black Mountain

It lies between the Sankosh River (west) and the Mangde (Tongsa) River (east), and tributaries of the two rivers run through deep ravines down its steep slopes. The road between Punakha and Tongsa Dzong (a fortified monastery) cuts across the range at Pele Pass at an elevation of 11,055 feet (3,370 metres).
