Taktsang Monastery most popularly known as the Tiger’s Nest, Bhutan’s most revered Temple is perched on the side of a cliff 900 m above the Paro valley. According to legend, the Guru is said to have flown on the back of the Tigress to this site from Singye Dzong in Lhuntse. He then meditated here for three months. The primary Lhakhang was built around Guru Rimpoche’s meditation cave by the Penlop of Paro, Gyaltse Tenzin Rabgay in 1684. In April 1998 a fire destroyed the main structure of the temple and its contents but now it has been restored to its original glory.
