The main relic of the temple is self arisen image of Vajravarahi or Dorji Phangmo, a form of Vajra Yogni, the highest female tutelary diety in Himalayan Buddhism. There are lots of unusual shaped rocks and imprints of Guru Rimpoche in the area. There are two things you need to know about this statue. First, it is not resting on anything. It is floating in the air. That is because the statue is not man made. It is Dorji Phangmo who appeared in person and turned herself to a statue. Second, anything you wish for, here, will come true. From Paro Town, it is about 45 minutes drive on the farm road, on the side valley, following Dochu River, which flows in Pachu. From the road head, it is about 3 hours trek through the dense oak, conifer and bamboo forest.
Gyalwa Sacha Rinchen was the first person to build the temple at Chumphug. Chumphug Nye is considered as second Tsari, while the first Tsari is located in Tibet, the Tsari Rongkor.
