One of the prettiest Buddhist monasteries that I have set my eyes on, this rich BLUE monastery is an absolute revelation. Situated near Paro and not very far away from the famous Tiger’s nest, the 7th century Kyichu Lakhang of Bhutan is steeped in rich culture. It is believed that Padmasambhava hid many spiritual treasures here during his visit in the 8th century. The temple is definitely small, but its murals portray a very big and elaborate history through stories from Himalayan Buddhism. My favorite past time is to rotate these colorful prayer wheels and soak in their positive vibrations.
