In the heart of the city, this place is one of the oldest in Thimphu. You need to take stairs to walk up to the top. You can visit the main site, offer prayers, enjoy scenic view of the valley.

An ancient monetary situated in Thimphu. You can reach this place within 15 mins by taxi or if you want to do a small trekking, it might take maximum 45 mins to reach here. This is something you should not miss in Thimphu.

Amazing statute of Buddha but also you get great views over Thimphu valley from the site. Also as you travel around Thimphu it can be seen from lots of places.
