Chimi Lhakang

Chimi Lhakang, Drukpa Kunley’s temple, is a renown pilgrimage site as it is widely believed that childless couples who pray there will then conceive children. Inside, a monk blesses you with an ivory and wood replicas of the saint’s lingam as well as his bow and arrow.

The temple is also home to little monks and I arrived just as their teacher was giving them an english lesson.
