Chakhar Lhakhang


It is located about 3km from the Swiss Farm, and is the residence of King Sinda of the 8 th century. Although it is easy to mistake it for a house, this is an interesting temple and worth a short visit. The main statue is of Guru Rinpoche, and there are dozens of masks and black hats that are used during the Jamey Lhakhang Drup festival. The original palace was made of iron, hence the name Chakhar said to have been nine storeys high, holding within it all the treasures of the world made up of iron. That’s how the name of present temple got its name as Chakhar Lhakhang.
