Palden Tashi Chholing Shedra is located in Phuentsholing, which serves as the gateway to Bhutan. Palden Tashi Chholing Shedra serves as a Buddhist College, which was consecrated in 2014. In Tsuglhakhang (assembly hall), we come across some of the best wall paintings.
Punakha Dzong- Punakha
Punakha Dzong has the honor of being the second largest Dzong in Bhutan. The structure dates back to 1637 and is entrusted to Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. The monastery also houses the remains of Tertön Pema Lingpa and Ngawang Namgyal. The monastery is also noted for its beautiful and intricate paintings.
Tiger's Nest – Paro
The Tiger Nest is also known as the Taktsang Monastery and is an important landmark in Paro. Some believe that Guru Padmasambhava (who supposedly introduced Buddhism to Bhutan) meditated on this place as he flew into the area in a flying tiger.
Tashichho Dzong- Thimpu
Tashichho Dzong in Thimpu houses thirty shrines. Since 1968, the monastery has served as the center of power of the Bhutanese government. Inside we come across the Throne Room, the Cabinet Secretariat and other offices such as the Ministries of Finance and Home Affairs.
Tamzhing Monastery- Bumthang Valley
Tamzhing Lhuendrup Monastery is a Nyingma Monastery of great importance in Bhutan. Known for supporting about 95 monks, the monastery is on the World Heritage Sites' proving list. The monastery also serves as a site of Sungtrul Rinpoche, which is supposed to be the embodiment of Pema Lingpa.
Galem House- Punakha
Located near Punakha Dzong, Galem House is a popular attraction for visitors. The three-story structure was supposedly owned by Changyul Bum Galem, a beautiful woman known by people for her tragic love story with a man of lower economic status.
The Haa Valley
We also have to ride in the Haa Valley, which is surrounded by thick forests. The area is historically important as it served as a trade route to Tibet in ancient times. Here we come across the Black and White Temple, Tagchu Goemba who is 100 years old and Shekhar Drak who is a unique temple.
The aforementioned places paint Bhutan as a nation which is happily decorated.
