Tachog Lhakhang is a privately run Buddhist Monastery which is situated on the base of a magnificent mountain across the Pa Chu River and was constructed in the early 15th century. It was built by the great Poet and iron bridge builder Yogi Thangtong Gyalpo who constructed Dungtse Lhakhang as well as several other iron bridges throughout Tibet and Bhutan. Tachogang refers to the ‘temple of the hill of the excellent horse’ and it is said that Thangtong had the vision of a spiritual horse when he was meditating there. Thereupon he decided to construct a temple at this very spot. The area has strong historical significance and is frequented by visitors who wish to know more about the area and the temple.
