Dhensa Punakha marries contemporary design with this Himalayan Kingdom’s ancient and alluring ways. At the core of the Dhensa Punakha philosophy lies the sense of innocence and peace that permeates everything about Bhutan, flanked by thick pine forests, it overlook the Punakha river and hundreds of padi-fields that stair-step down to the valley floor. It is surrounded by plentiful walking and trekking trails.

It is entirely the handiwork of local Bhutanese artisans. The temple is also a centre of higher learning and meditation for nuns.
