The Buddha is more than 50 meters high and impressive. Locals come there and it seems to be popular, that is even if the construction of the site not yet is finalised. Well worth a visit, it makes you feel small!

Huge statue of Buddha looking over the capital city and its just that. Constructions are going on in the surroundings but worth a visit nonetheless.

The sheer size of this Buddha statue leaves you spell bound. The chill breeze on this hill top along with the overlooking view of Thimphu town make it a great place to visit.
