Dzongdrakha Monastery set similar to Takstang

Dzongdrakha Goempa is often referred as Mini Taktsang because of its unique location. Dzongdrakha temple is build above Bondey valley on a steep cliff. The temples were built in the 16th century by the first local king, Chogay Dragpa. The four temples are dedicated to Buddhist deity Tara, Tsheringma, Guru and Jowo Jampa. From the little town of Bondey, near the airport, walk for about ½ an hour to Dzongdrakha, a group of temple monastery with retreat center overlooking the Paro Valley. The temples are perched on the cliff so you have to hike all the way through to lush forest to reach the Dzongdrakha temple. You will definitely be mesmerized by panoramic view of the valley its surrounding provides.
