This giant golden buddha statue sits up on the hillside overlooking Thimphu. It is a beautiful and impressive structure, surrounded by smaller statues. The area is still not 100% complete, with some landscaping still to be finished. The area is very clean and well maintained....More

Beautiful beyond words!! Very soul stirring and majestic. The weather was just right and the sun reflecting on the golden statue of Lord Buddha was a sight never to be forgotten. The other statues and the huge courtyard is very impressive indeed!!
