About Kyichu Lhakhang in Paro

Only 4.7 km away from the centre of the Paro town is the temple of Kyichu Lhakhang – the Sacred Jewel of Bhutan. Inside the complex of this temple lies the oldest shrine that stands in Tibet – the Jowo Temple. The first temple in the Kyichu Lhakhang premises was built by King Songtsen Gampo of Tibet in 659 AD. The legend myth says that it was constructed to pin down the left foot of a giant ogress who lay across the lands of Bhutan and Tibet and was restricting the progress of Buddhism all around. The concept of good over evil that presides in the very significance of Kyichu Lhakhang temple’s origin is what brings so many people to its doorstep. One can find local elderlies shuffling around and rotating the prayer wheels all day long, muttering chants or prayers.

Kyichu Lhakhang in Paro is one of the most ornate temples in Bhutan. As one enters the innermost courtyard, on the right to the doorway is a mural of King Gesar of Ling, the famous Tibetan warrior-king who has apparently written the world’s longest poem. The premise houses a 5m high statue of Guru Rinpoche as well, just beside the main temple of Kyichu Lhakhang, consecrated in 1968 by Ashi Kesang Wangchuk, the wife and the then Queen of the third King of Bhutan. It is said that Guru Rinpoche himself visited the temple in the 8th century and hidden treasures inside. There is a chorten for the queen’s Nyingma Buddhism spiritual teacher Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche as well.

Coming to the main Kyichu Lhakhang temple, it houses one of the most precious gems of the country, a 7th century original Tibetan statue of Jowo Jampa or Jowo Shakyamuni. This statue is a contemporary of the original one in Lhasa, and its temple forms a sacred network of 12 Jowo Lhakhang temples that surround the holy temple of Lhasa in Tibet. Outside there are prayer wheels and a statue of Chenrezig with 11 heads and 1000 arms. However, no description of Kyichu Lhakhang can do justice to how magical it looks like in real life.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      Travel to Bhutan with Bhutan Inc was a wonderful experience. Bhutan is a beautiful country with amazing people. We had booked our flights on our own and with help of Travel Triangle finalized Bhutan inc as our agent. We interacted with Mr.Hari who was available anytime and answered all our queries, adjusted our hotels as per our needs. On reaching Paro airport, we were picked up by Mr. Rinchen in Hyundai H1, which we requested. He was very very helpful throughout our trip, took good care of us. Hotel Namseling in Thimphu was very good and close to the craft bazaar. Rooms were neat and breakfast good, more than that the people running the hotel were amazing. In Punakha we stayed at Damchen resort in a beautiful location on banks of a river. However the food was not good, especially breakfast. We stayed at Soenam Tsokhang resort in Paro. It was located far from Paro but rooms were good, food was very good and again amazing people are running the place. They took care of us very well. I would recommend travelling to Bhutan with Bhutan inc.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      The driver who was assigned to us had no information of the places. He was supposed to be driver cum guide but he was clueless of the places and he had no idea of the itenery provided to us. So far bad experience in terms of driver survice provided by travel triangle. We had to ask local people for the places mentioned in our itenery as driver told us nothing about the place or museum (not even the basic open or close timings) We did trek to tiger nest, though it was hectic the view was worth the climb.

      I was bit skeptical when I booked through Sunshine travels but trip surely went amazing. Sunshine agents Lalit and Sanju were polite and co-coordinating trip throughout. Even though when we asked to make itinerary changes last minute they happily made changes. Pre- trip doubts were cleared right away. driver was polite and well behaved. Hotels were really good, however we really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Wangchuk, Thimpu more. Hotel locations were perfect so that we were able to explore cities on our own after sightseeing. We are very glad that Sunshine travels considered our requirements while booking hotels. I would totally recommend them. Sincere gratitude for amazing experience !

      One of the best trips ever had. Well co ordinated and implemented travel package by Golden vacation. Right from the moment of landing at Bagdogra airport we felt we were taken care of by the best team. Will give 10/10 to our cab driver Mr Anup who knew the pulse of his Travellers Since we were a three member ladies group was always apprehensive of the safety point of the trip .but the assurances of the travel co ordinator Mr Debendra was never a market gimmick . We were taken care in the best possible manner. The rooms we were allotted at Hotel golden resorts at Paro was the best as we could see Tigers nest sitting in our room .
