Bumthang, Bhutan

Visit one of the most sacred sites in Bhutan - Kurjey Monastery

The Kurjey Monastery, or Kurjey Lhakang, is a temple complex comprising three buildings facing south in which preserves the remains of the first three kings of Bhutan. It is one of the most renowned attractions in Bumthang District, Bhutan due to its historical and religious importance. The Guru Lhakhang, the first of the three temples, is the oldest one, which is built on the rock in 1652 by Minjur Tenpa while he was Trongsa Penlop before becoming the third Desi of Bhutan. The second building, the Sampa Lhundrup Lhakhang, was constructed in 1900 by the first King of Bhutan, Ugyen Wangchuck while the third one as well as the youngest temple, which is known as the Ka Gon Phur sum Lhakhang is lately built in 1984. Also, a large tree behind one of the temple buildings is believed to be a "hidden treasure" (terma in Bhutansese) that is left by saint Padmasambhava. Widely known as a holy supremacy place, the Kurjey Monastery attracts many locals everyday for worship. A traditional festival of the temple is also celebrated in June every year, which offers an up-close and personal with Bhutan's traditions for visitors from abroad.
