Tachog Lhakhang

This 14th-century Tachog Lhakhang is located on the base of a mountain across the Pa Chu on the Paro-Thimphu highway and is a must-visit temple in the Paro valley.

He was an important Terton of the Nyingmapa lineage and attained Drubthop (great magician). to get to the temple one may walk over the iron chains that span over the Pa Chu.
