Dargay Goemba

Dargay Goemba is a temple built on the spot where Lama Drukpa Kuenlay first met the beautiful Ashi Genzo in the 15th Century. Over the years, Lam Ngawang Drakpa started a meditation centre and named it Ta-Ngyel Lhakhang or the ‘temple where the horses slept’. Later, it was renamed Druk Dargaygang. The temple was enlarged and a statue of the divine madman along with other sacred relics were installed during the time of Desi Tenzin Rabgye.

Drukpa Kunley was a Tibetan Buddhist master who came to Bhutan in the 15th Century, a master whose extremely bizarre, unorthodox and humorous ways of imparting Buddhism earned him the ‘Divine Madman’ nickname.

The temple is located in Chungsegang which is 10 km from Chuzomsa, in the district of Wangdue Phodrang.
