Destination: Changangkha Lhakhang
Built in 12th century, Changangkha Lhakhang is oldest temple in Thimphu. It is hovering over a ridge above Thimphu, Bhutan. Lama Phajo Drukgom Zhigpo who came to Bhutan from Ralung in Tibet chose this site to build this lhakhang. The Lhakhang houses Chenrizig: an 11-headed, thousand-armed manifestation of Avolokitesawara as the central statue.

The Kingdom is a stunning, remarkable Himalayan country sandwiched between China, Tibet and India. Bhutan has been ruled by the same benevolent family for 400 years. It is believed that the word Bhutan is derived from Sanskrit meaning end of Tibet. Serene, spectacular vistas, the views are endless. So proud of their country, citizens welcome visitors warmly, from their heart.
