About Zangtho Pelri Lhakhang, Phuentsholing

This temple or lhakhang located in the centre of the city Phuentsholing is a representation of the celestial abode of Guru Rinpoche, albeit in concrete.On the ground floor, you will find statues of the eight manifestations of Guru Rinpoche, or the eight principal forms that he assumed at different points in his life. The walls are adorned with paintings depicting the lift of Buddha. On the next floor you will find eight Bodhisattavas and statues of Avalokiteshvara and Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal while the top floor hosts the main statue of Amitabha.

The garden surrounding the modern Zangto Pelri Lhakhang is very pleasant for a stroll and there are generally pilgrims there to pay their homage, spinning the prayer wheels that send their prayers spiralling up into the heavens. This is great for a glimpse into Bhutanese cultural heritage and to witness their intriguing method of worship.

Zangtho Pelri Lhakhang, Phuentsholing Reviews

  • Situated right in the middle of the city this is very close to the Bhutan main gate.Very beautiful structure with lots of idols and figures.One of the top attractions of this city. The place here is very calm and serene.There are also chairs and seats available for people to sit and relax.Really enjoyed it.

  • This is wonderful religious and recreational park in the heart of Phuentsholing town where Buddhist go and make their wishes as well as it is recreational area for people after the work...It's best recreational zone in the area.

  • Great sight seeing at Phuntsholing located in the heart of the city. If you are here or coming to Punakha let us know on the contact numbers for River Rafting or Rafting and Camping Adventure activities...Have fun and take back the memories.

  • It's a breathing space in the otherwise crowded and noisy Phuntsholing town. With greenery and shade surrounding the holy temple. It's like the oasis where everyone gather, especially in the evening to cool down. And rest of the day elderly people gather around the temple. The place has a fountain with colorful lighting that's become the attraction in the evenings and there is also a set of handwash station, the place is going to wholesome they there is a toilet facility! (For the missing toilet facility I give one star less)

  • Memorable experience , I got warm well come from the people of Bhutan , specially two little girls , one of them lost her father in her childhood ...
