Jambey Lhakhang

Jampey Lhakhang is said to be one of the 108 temples built by the Tibetan King Srongtsen Gampo in 659AD . This temple was built on a single day by subduing the demoness which was said to have been causing obstruction to the spread of Buddhism. Temples were built over her body parts that spread over Tibet, Bhutan and the borderlands. The best known temples are Jorkhang in Lhasa, Kichu in Paro and Jambay Lakhang in Bumthang. Kongchugsum in Bumthang, Khaine in Lhuentse and the two temples of Haa might have also been the parts of these 108 temples. This temple was later visited by Guru Rimpoche and was restored by Sindhu Raja after Guru Rimpoche cured of his illness. Since then this temple has been repaired and rebuilt several times. This is a must visit sight in Bumthang.
