Tashigang Goemba was Founded by the 12th Abbot of Bhutan Je Kunga Jamtsho in the 18th century, this quaint temple is located in Toebi gewog under Thimphu District.
The temple is situated on the top of a mountain, where it stands majestically making it a paradise. It was in his dreams that he was prophesized to build this temple. When he followed the directions to the site where the temple stands today, he met a yak herder on the way. He considered this meeting as a good sign as the yak herder was carrying milk.
Je Kunga Jamtsho built the monastery in 1768 and named it Tashigang Goemba, after the yak herder’s name.
