It is dedicated to the world peace and prosperity. The numerous religious paintings and complex tantric statues housed inside the monument reflect both the peaceful and wrathful aspects of Buddhist deities.

    Kyichu Lhakhang, which was built in 659 by King Songtsen Gampo of Tibet. It is believed that this temple holds down the left foot of an ogress whose body is so large that it covers Bhutan and most of eastern Tibet. The king built 108 temples in a single day to pin the ogress to the earth forever. Several temples were built in Bhutan out of which the best known of these temples are Kyichu Lhakhang in Paro and Jampa Lhakhang in Bumthang.

    Dungsey Lhakhang, was built in 1433 by the famous iron bridge builder Thangtong Gyalpo. The temple has three floors representing hell, earth and heaven. The paintings inside the temple are said to be one of the best in Bhutan.

    National Museum which is also known asTa Dzong. It is worthwhile visiting the museum as it is a great introduction to the culture, life style and history of the kingdom of Bhutan. Once a watch tower for the Rinpung Dzong, it was converted into the National museum in 1968.

The hike to the monastery makes a splendid half-day excursion. On the way back, stop for lunch at the Taktsang cafeteria which is about a forty minutes hike from the monastery.
