Jambay Lhakhang || Jampa Temple, or Temple of Maitreya

Jambay Lhakhang, the Temple of Maitreya, is one of the legendary 108 temples built by Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo in 659 CE, according to legend. These temples were constructed in a single day to subdue a supine demoness obstructing Buddhism's spread. They spanned Tibet, Bhutan, and neighboring regions. Padmasambhava visited Jambay Lhakhang, and later, King Sindhu Raja restored it upon his return. It has undergone numerous repairs, maintaining its spiritual significance over time.
