I had been to this place few years back when the construction was still going on and only the main statue was put in forth.

Spending some time around this place, serenity and calmness bounds you and upon looking down you see the majestic view of forests.

If you are visiting Bhutan, then Buddha Dordenma should be on your “Must See” list.
