about changangkha lhakhang

Changangkha Lhakhang, situated atop a hill,  is the oldest temple in the Thimpu Valley . It is the spiritual home of children born in the beautiful Chang valley. The structure  was established in the 12th century by Lama Phajo Drukgom Shigpo, who came from Ralung in Tibet. Parents traditionally come here to choose names for their newborns and get blessings for their children from the protector deity Tamdrin. Children are blessed by a phurba and given a sacred thread.  The view of the city from this point is sure to spell bound you.
