Taksang Lhakhang is Bhutan’s most iconic landmark and religious site

The name Taktsang translates to “The Tiger’s Nest”. This temple is one of the most holy sites in the kingdom and clings impossibly to a sheer cliff face 900 meters above the Paro Valley. It was first built in 1692 at a cave where Guru Rimpoche meditated in the 7th century A.D. Legend states that Guru Rimpoche flew to the site atop the back of a tigress and meditated in the cave for 3 years, 3 months, 3 days and 3 hours in order to subdue evil demons residing within it. According to the legend, Guru Padmasambhava or Guru Rinpoche, who spread Buddhism across the entire Himalayas is said to have flown here in the 8th century from Kurtoe Singye Dzong in eastern Bhutan on the back of a Tigress, in order to subdue negative spiritual forces that were hostile to spread of Buddhism. Guru Rinpoche then manifested into a wrathful form known as Guru Dorji Drolo to subdue the demons. The cave has been considered a sacred site ever since and many famous saints have travelled to meditate in it.

Taktsang Lhakhang is located approximately 10 km north of Paro town at an altitude of 3120 m. In order to arrive at the temple visitors must trek for around 2-3 hours through beautiful, shady pine forests. No trip to Bhutan would be complete without a visit to this remarkable heritage site.
