To Dechen-Phodrang lhakhang.

n Sunday, I lead a delegation of 13 scout members to Dechen-Phodrang temple.  Mr. Nado, Dzongkha lopen of our school accompanied us as a guide.

Dechen-Phodrang is some 6 hours journey by foot from Yangtse town. The temple is located near a small tributary which adjoins the Kholong-chhu.

The temple is one of the most sacred holy site which is visited by the devotes from far and wide. Everyday devotes swarm the site like bees in the hive. The reason for its sacredness is because it’s the place where Guru Rinpochhe mediated, when he visited Bhutan.  

It was a wonderful opportunity to cleanse our much provoked mind once in a while. It relives our tensed mind from everyday activities when we see such holy monuments, passed on through the cycle of generations.   

Time has elapsed, centuries have gone by, things have changed but when these wondrous monuments stand before us- we just sigh and say ‘Nothing has changed in all these years’, because we know, these structures weren’t built yesterday but was there some thousands of years ago.

So wouldn’t you care to visit? I bet you…     


Wouldn't this be a god's work?


Those are stone growing on the tree

Guru meditated here; his back rested stone

Jewels which grants wish

look closely, you can see Guru Rinpochhe right there.

He founded the temple

Get through that hole and all your sins will be cleansed

This is supposed to be a door for Zangdo-pelri. This door can be opened only by the chosen one. it is said that on auspicious day's, one can hear sounds of ceremonies being held inside.  


  1. Very beautiful, and yes I would love to visit. The last photo, I see a face in it. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Please do so and thanks for reading.

  3. Nice post sir Sonam,

    A good account of your pilgrimage. Was it a excursion or were you all on a mission to do something useful for the holy site as scouts?

    Although i have not been to this place, your post took me to the place and i knew that it is one of the most sacred sites in our country. The world is keeping us so busy in doing worldly affairs and we seldom remember to visit such holy sites and get blessing from them. But it is nice that you have it for us through the post. Thank you for sharing la.

  4. well, it was a campaign cum the social service for the temple. Thank you for visiting my blog.
