The magnificent Chizhing Samten Choling Lhakhang is located in Geney gewog of Thimphu and it was initially founded by Lama Thinley Rabyang, a Tibetan who belonged to the Sakya school of Buddhism and was deputed To Bhutan.
The tradition of deputing Tibetan Lamas to Bhutan and vice versa came to an end in 1959 when china invaded Tibet. Since then, the Lhakhang got handed over to the Central Monastic Body and Lamas.
In earlier times, the temple was systematically used as the summer residence for the Lama of Dekiling Lhakhang. The principal relics in the monastery are the statues of Due Sum Sangay following the Drukpa Kagyu religion.
