Trashigang Goemba was built in the 18th Century. It is located 30Kms away from Thimphu Town to the mountain top, away from the onslaught of globalization. You can reach here either by taking a dirt road of 10Km from Dochula Thimphu-Punakha Highway or by taking a 3 hours hike through a forest of Hemlock or rhododendrons.
It is an important meditation centre, and there are numerous small houses for meditation near the goemba. In addition to about 16 monks, there are a few anims (nuns). Inside the lhakhang there are statues of several Je Khenpos who meditated here.
The place has an aura of different dimension.
