Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten is a spectacular temple situated on the pine forest ridge of Punakha valley. The hike to the Chorten starts from the bridge over the Mo Chhu River and takes you through the lush paddy field in a traditional Bhutanese setting. The view from the Chorten is simply amazing with the River flowing through the golden Punakha valley and the mountains around.
Built by Queen Mother Ashi Tshering Yangdon Wangchuck, this Chorten is a splendid example of Bhutanese architecture. It was built over eight and a half years with meticulous planning, designing, and devising that are in accordance with the details that have been drawn from religious scriptures.
