Holiday Activities

Thimphu

Memorial Chorten, Buddha Point, Takin Zoo (National Animal of Bhutan)

The Memorial Stupa, Thimphu, also known as the Thimphu Chorten, is a stupa (Dzongkha chöten, cheten) in Thimphu, Bhutan, located on Doeboom Lam in the southern-central part of the city near the main roundabout and Indian military hospital. The stupa, built in 1974 to honor the third Druk Gyalpo, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck (1928–1972), is a prominent landmark in the city with its golden spires and bells. In 2008, it underwent extensive renovation. It is popularly known as "the most visible religious landmark in Bhutan". Great Buddha Dordenma is a gigantic Shakyamuni Buddha statue in the mountains of Bhutan celebrating the 60th anniversary of fourth king Jigme Singye Wangchuck. The statue houses over one hundred thousand smaller Buddha statues, each of which, like the Great Buddha Dordenma itself, are made of bronze and gilded in gold. The Great Buddha Dordenma is sited amidst the ruins of Kuensel Phodrang, the palace of Sherab Wangchuck, the thirteenth Desi Druk, overlooking the southern approach to Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan. Construction began in 2006 and was planned to finish in October 2010, however construction did not conclude until 25 September 2015. The completed work is one of the largest Buddha rupas in the world, at 169 feet (52 m) and contains 100,000 8-inch-tall and 25,000 12-inch-tall gilded bronze Buddhas. Takin zoo basically houses the National Animal of Bhutan Called Takin. This animal is a little strange, basically it has the head of a Goat and the body of a Cow.

Thimphu

Archery Ground (National Game of Bhutan), Buddha statue, Wooden Bridge, Handicraft Shop, Changangkha Buddhist monastery, 13 arts & craft institute, Tashicho Dzong

Watching Bhutanese playing archery in their national dress is unique from other part of the world. Archery ground is located below the Thimphu town and it is easy to travel there and watch the game. You can see the oldest Wooden Bridge (one of the tourist attractions) over the beautiful Thimphu Chhu or Wang Chhu river. And after crossing this bridge you’ll find many stalls outside where the locals selling various clothing, handicrafts, and souvenirs. And came to know from my local guide, here they are selling many products which made by Bangladesh. Changangkha Buddhist monastery temple, perched like a fortress on a ridge above central Thimphu, hums with pilgrim activity. It was established in the 12th century on a site chosen by Lama Phajo Drukgom Shigpo, who came from Ralung in Tibet. Parents traditionally come here to get auspicious names for their newborns or blessings for their young children from the protector deity Tamdrin (to the left in the grilled inner sanctum). Children are blessed by a phurba (ritual dagger) and given a sacred thread. Tashichhoedzong is a Buddhist monastery and fortress on the northern edge of the city of Thimphu in Bhutan, on the western bank of the Wang Chu. It has traditionally been the seat of the Druk Desi (or "Dharma Raja"), the head of Bhutan's civil government, an office which has been combined with the kingship since the creation of the monarchy in 1907, and summer capital of the country.
