Chimi Lhakhang, Bhutan - Chimi Lhakhang- Temple of Fertility

Temple, Scenic

The Chimi Lhakhang, located on a small hill in the centre of the valley, is dedicated to Lama Drukpa Kuenley, who in the late 15th century used comedy, songs and outrageous behaviour to dramatise his teachings and due to this also well-known as ‘Divine Madman’. This temple is also well-known as the temple of fertility. It is generally believed that couples who do not have children and wanting one, if they pray at this temple, they are usually blessed with a child very soon. The trail leads across rice fields to the tiny village of Pana, meaning ‘field’. It then follows a small brook downhill to Yoaka and across more fields before making a short climb to Chimi Lhakhang.
