Interesting Buddha, but there are large Buddhas in many places in Southeast Asia.

Main attraction for me is the view over the city, as the Buddha is impressive, but not really that unusual.

It is the highest statue I ever had seen. I had been to USA to see the statue of Liberty but I think this is great.

The buddha statue was majestic. Though the place was under construction, it was wonderful. A must visit place in Bhutan.

The project is yet to be ready yet gives an insight and depth on Bhutan's belief in Budhism and culture. Built on a mountain top within a large area which gives a beautiful view down to the valley of Thimphu City. Drive to the site is also enjoyable.
