Why Travel Bhutan With Truly Bhutan

Phunying La

The story of Nye Chen Phunying La is as ancient as the history of Aja Nye itself. It is considered that Guru Rinpoche meditated within Phunying mountain rims for a few months while driving away the demon king Khikha-rathoed who had fled from Aja to Baeyul Khempa Jong, situated towards the North of Kurtoe.

The Nye was deciphered by Lama Karma Jamyang, who revealed the entire Aja Nye. It is believed that there are four religious hidden sites located in the four major cardinal directions with Pema Yangzom (alias for Aja) at its center.

Additionally, Nye Chen Phunying La is contemplated to be the western section and is referred to as the heart of all ridges on the earth and consists of numerous religious sites related to the Guru Rimpoche.

Recently, the Nye has played as a desert retreat and meditation refuge for many profoundly regarded Yogis such as Lama Sonam Zangpo in the 1960s. The Nye consists of more than 50 religious sites along the circumambulatory passage and consists of indications of the Guru Padmasambhava treasure box and imprints of Khandro Drowa Zangmo’s cranium.
