I happened to attend the "flag-match" at the Chorten in the afternoon. It was so interesting.
It is a daily event, everyday at 5PM I think. Don't miss it :-)

Its OK I guess for the quick visit you usually get to it, but plenty of more exciting things to see and if you just drive past I think most would be happy, except for those who like standing in front of everything to have their photo taken.

This temple was built by King Jigme who was known as the father of Modern Bhutan. The architecture is something different. Its walking distance from the thimphu town area.I saw a huge number of senior citizens praying and worshiping.

Memorial Chorten was built in memory of our 3rd King , Jigme Dorji Wangchuk . It's a place where public gather during religious & scared days to offer butter lamps . It's a perfect place to unwind your day by going around the monument with fellow devotees .I love my evenings at the Chorten . I highly recommend Visitors to include this beautiful chorten during their visit in Thimphu .

The whole stupa and the temple may appear less on the glamour side compared to other places in Bhutan, but what makes it interesting is the crowd. There was whole lot of aged devotes around the place who seemed to be enjoying the whole spiritual ambiance of the place as well as the weather and the beautiful surroundings. While there I also saw people circling the stupa which a prayer method used to show your gratitude when your wishes come true and also a way to ask for a wish. The place may not have much to offer but definitely the ambiance was good enough for me.
