The statue was made in China (of course), cut into pieces and then shipped and trucked in from Phuentsholing. The impressive construction will be great view for travelers in Thimpu alone.
  9. National Textile Museum in Thimphu showcases Bhutanese textile which has become recognized as one of the most distinct art forms. The museum has six major themes that include weft pattern weaves, warp weaves, role of textile in religion, textile on indigenous fibers, achievement in textiles arts and royal collections.

The museum seeks to gradually become a centre for textile studies. The textile museum is getting popular for carrying out research studies and documentation on Bhutanese textiles.
  10. Changangkha Lhakhang, a big experience of Thimpu travel, is situated on a small hill overlooking the Thimphu valley. The monastery was built in the 13th century by Lam Phajo Dugom Zhigpo. Children born in Thimphu are taken to this temple because it is considered the spiritual home of the children born in Chang valley. Names such as Tandin and Sonam are given from this temple to new born babies taken for blessings from the protector deity Tamdrin. Besides, the central statue in the temple is Avaloketesvara, Buddha of compassion, in his manifestation with 11 heads, a thousand hands and eyes.
  11. Takin Preserve, an unavoidable site in Thimpu, houses the Takin – a unique, endangered species found only in Bhutan, Nepal, China and Burma.

Legend has it that the animal was created by the great Buddhist yogi, Drupa Kunley, and it can be found only in Bhutan and nearby areas.
  12. The Folk Heritage Museum, a window into traditional Bhutanese life, is dedicated to connect people to the Bhutanese rural past through exhibitions, demonstrations, and documentation of rural life. The principal exhibition in the museum is a restored three storey traditional rammed mud and timber house, which dates back to the mid 19th century. The design and form of house is that of an average household in the Wang area during that era. From ground to top floor, household objects, typical domestic tools and equipments that would have been used by a family during that period are put on display.
  13. Craft Bazaar, one of the interesting sites in Thimpu, usually comes alive on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in centenary Farmer’s market. It is held under the patronage of department of cottage and small industries collaborating with department of culture. The market also assists in promotion and protection of traditional arts.

  14. Changlimithang Stadium and Archery Ground are two must visit sites in Thimpu. The national stadium occupies the site of the 1885 battle that helped establish the political supremacy of Ugyen Wangchuck, Bhutan’s first King. It was also the location of the 2008 coronation celebrations. Besides, the archery ground here is much more fun. It is worth checking to see if there is an archery tournament going on: whether it’s traditional bamboo or high-tech carbon-fiber bows, the skill, camaraderie and good-humoured ribbing are always entertaining. Traditional songs and victory dances are all part of the fun.
  15. Weekend Market, the best way to intermingle with local community in Thimpu, is crammed into a set of stalls on both banks of the Wang Chhu, just north of Changlimithang Stadium. Vendors from throughout the region arrive on Thursday and Friday, setting up evening stalls in Norzin Lam, and remain until Sunday night. The most interesting selection is upstairs. Across the newly constructed cantilever footbridge, known as the Kundeyling Baazam, on the west bank, is a collection of clothing stalls as well as a handicraft market. Products include wooden bowls, mala beads, printing blocks, amulets, yak tails and prayer wheels, some of which are made in Nepal. There are some gems amid the junk. Overall, it is an interesting place to visit and provides opportunity to mingle with the local people.
