About Jangsarbu Lhakhang, Paro
This seemingly small and insignificant-looking temple is home to themajestic statue of Sakyamuni Buddha that was carried all the way from Lhasa, Tibet. The temple also houses the protector deity of Paro. As the traditional legend goes, the statue of SHakyamuni Buddha was destined for ParoDzong or RinpungDzong, behind which this temple is located, and was only placed in the JangsarbuLhakhangovernight for safe keeping. However, when the time came to transport the statue to its original destination, it proved impossible to move, thus becoming a permanent feature of the Lhakhang.
This is a good place for a quick visit, a heavyweight of spiritual significance in its own right.
