Located little outside Thimpu on a hill - just 10 min drive. This is the tallest sitting buddha statue in the world overlooking Thimu city.

A must I would say while in Thimphu, the sheer scale is awesome, inside the workmanship and wall painting is very fine and beautiful, lovely views of the surrounding area, some outside areas are still being worked on but that does not interfere with the statue itself, go see .

This is a beautiful statue which stands 169 feet high up on a mountain with amazing views. You can go inside and look around and I highly recommend this for about a 2 hr. Adventure. I have seen many Buddha's and this one is well worth it.

The statue of Buddha shimmers as the sun light falls on him and the place is very pleasant and is filled with lot of positive radiance. This place also offers beautiful view of the city.
