Visit Buddha Dordenma
The biggest gold gilded Buddha statue in the world, Buddha Dordenma is a wonderful attraction located atop the Kuensel Phodrang hill. This statue is 51-foot high sitting atop a large meditation hall.
What amazes most is that 125,000 mini Buddha statues are placed inside the giant statue and the outer part is gilded with gold. A number of tourists come to pay respects to Lord Buddha and admire the architectural marvel. It offers a calm atmosphere with open views of the entire Thimphu Valley. Biking lovers can admire this statue while passing by the Buddha Point (nearby road). Make sure to visit this wonder early morning or late evening when the air is cool and the lights magnify the beauty of the statue.
