Jampey Lhakhang monastery

Jampey Lhakhang monastery
Located above Jampel Lhakhang, the Kurje Lhakhang consists of three temples. The one on the right was built in 1652 on the rock face where Guru meditated in the 8th century. Second temple is built on the site of a cave containing a rock with the imprint of Guru's body and is therefore considered the most holy. The present Royal Queen Mother recently built the third temples. These three temples are surrounded by 108 chorten wall, symbolic of each joint of the human body.
