Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Interesting to see three temples side by side, built during different times. The oldest temple is built in the 17th century and has the imprint of the second Buddha in a cove where he meditated (but can’t really see the actual imprint, blocked by statues). Nevertheless an interesting place to visit while in Central Bhutan

Kurjey Lhakhang is a large monastery complex. There are three buildings. The kings of Bhutan are buried there but we did not see their tombs as one of the buildings is/was off limits to tourists.

Kurjey Lhakhang is one of the most sacred and holy sites of Bhutan and Kurjey translates to ‘the Body Imprint’ of Guru Padmasambhava/Guru Rinpoche, the patron saint of Bhutan. The legend behind the Kurjey Lhakhang is one of the most important event in the history of Bhutan as it relates to the visit of Guru Rinpoche. In the 8th Century, Bumthang was ruled by the benevolent King Sindhu Raja. During an on-going war with another King called Naw Chhoe (Big Nose), Sindhu Raja sought the help of the local deities including the chief deity Shelging Karpo. However in the ensuing combat, Sindhu Raja lost the battle and his son was killed. Enraged, Sindhu Raja destroyed all the structures belonging to the local deities which angered Shelging Karpo who in turn stole the life force of the King. No medicines or local healers could help the king who was almost dying. One of the King’s chief attendant sought help from Guru Rinpoche who was at that time residing in Nepal. This was Guru’s second visit to Bhutan and as destined the Guru arrived at Bumthang, blessing and consecrating numerous sites along the way.

In Bumthang Sindhu Raja appealed to the Guru and also offered his daughter Tashi Khyedon as his spiritual consort. Then, at the present site of the Kurjey Lhakhang, Guru meditated inside a cave and after his meditation performed a religious dance. Surprised and curious the local deities came out of their hiding places and instantly the Guru subdued each and every one of them except Shelging karpo who knew about Guru’s strategy. The Guru then asked Tashi Khyedon to get a pail of water in a copper vase from a nearby spring. The Guru directed the reflection of the sun on the vase towards the cave where Shelging Karpo was hiding. Intrigued with the reflection, Shelging Karpo came out of his cave and whereby he was immediately subdued.

Shelging Karpo returned the life force of the King and the Guru compelled all the subdued deities into protectors of Buddhism. Hence the King regained his health and Bumthang came to be an important pilgrimage site till date.

The cave where Guru meditated bore his body imprint and a temple was built around it. Over the centuries additional temples were built, and presently there are 3 main temples and a Zangdopelri (stupa). The whole complex is enclosed by 108 small stupas along with a huge cypress tress supposed to have grown out from Guru’s walking stick. A few minutes’ walk from the complex is the holy spring water from where Tashi Khyedon brought the water that finally helped Guru Rinpoche subdue Shelging Karpo. The spring water is supposed to have numerous medicinal and curative properties with people taking back jerry cans of the holy water home while visiting the Lhakhang.

Firsly, I would like to say that we had the most wonderful trip in Bhutan and we enjoyed every minute of it until we arrived in Kurje Lhakhang which I have to say looks a very impresive set of temples. However, we couldn't think about the beautiful stautes and holy objects because outside in the grounds we were confronted with 3 or 4 dead puppies being eaten by their remaining (barely alive) brothers and sisters. They clearly died of starvation and it looked like the other puppies would soon follow in their demise. It was difficult understand on one side the opulance and holiness of the temples with this pittifull scene with noone caring to give even a bowlfull of rice. We gave the biscuits we had to the puppies and their mother, but they need regular food. If anyone from Kurje Lhakhang reads this review please take care of the dogs in your compound. Om mani padme hum.

Serene landscape
Lots of climbing involved
At least 4 floors to the main altar
But the holy spring water is refreshing after the climb

It’s nice to have the 3 temples built at different times together and learn the history behind them. The main attraction of it is to see the body imprint of Guru Padmasambhava which sadly, is not meant to be. The imprint is covered up by the altar and all one can see is a photograph of it.
