Project Description


Title: Pagodas at the Nunnery

West of Punakha is the only Bhutanese Buddhist nunnery, erected with royal support. The nunnery is beautifully situated on the rounding of the mounting. Of the nuns virtually no sign, they live quietly outside the sight of the tourists. But the surroundings are beautiful, with for instance this row of pagodas, bright white in the afternoon sun.
