Kyichu Lhakhang in Paro is associated with mythical tale of a Buddhist Tibetan King who built 108 temples in one day to subdue an ogress. The demon thwarted the spread of Buddhism. While majority of the 108 temples were built in Tibet, two were built in Bhutan. Kyichu Lhakhang in Paro and Jampa Lhakhang in Bumthang. The Lhakhang is ten minute drive away from Paro town. The temple’s inner sanctum includes the statue of the future Buddha (Jowo Jampa) and a statue of the present Buddha Shakyamuni.
