Photographer's Note

Kurjey Lhakang, also known as Kurjey Monastery, is located in the beautiful Bumthang valley in the Bumthang district. This is the final resting place of the remains of the first three kings of Bhutan. As well, a large tree behind one of the temple buildings is believed to be a terma that was left there by Padmasambhava. This is one of the most sacred place in Bhutan.
