It was around 6:00 in the morning, chilling cold outside, complete quiet. Along the way, Memorial Chorten looked as pretty as a picture.We reached in 15 minutes. From the parking area, only the face of Buddha is visible, as we climbed the stairs and reached the top, Buddha was seated on a golden meditation hall and looked magnanimous.I turned back and entire Thimphu Valley seemed to be below me.While exercising, I saw the sun making its way from behind the mountains and when I looked at one of the largest statues of Buddha in the world, it was shining golden.How to reach – Its 6-7 km from Thimphu town, on the top of mount Kuenselphodrang Nature Park. Our driver cum friend lambu took us there. If you are going for sunrise, you need to book a taxi beforehand.Simply Bhutan
When the beautiful unending nature is infront of you and Feeling of Buddha at the back you just remember a line that what lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
♦♦Buddha Dordenma statue: A quick stop at this gigantic Shakyamuni Buddha statue in the mountains of Thimphu (celebrating the 60th anniversary of fourth king Jigme Singye Wangchuck). This place is visible to one from almost any place in Thimphu. We chose to visit in the morning, as it could get very windy later.
We reached to hotel Osel, i am usually good at booking hotels but it was different.My room overlook had a view of Buddha Dordenma sitting on top of the mountain.it was so so blissful .Apart from this kitchen was closed but they kept food for us.
