Along the trails to the “Divine Mad Monks” Abode
This is a very special package taking you to the “Temple of Fertility,” associated with Lam Drukpa Kuenley or the Divine Mad Monk, whose esoteric method of spreading Buddhism continues to be revered even today.
Amongst others, Lam Drukpa Kuenley is also associated with the worship of the Phallus. Apart from his teachings, his greatest legacy stands in the form of a Lhakhang (monastery) called Chhimi Lhakhang, “Temple of Fertility”, built to honor Lam Drukpa Kunley (1455-1529) where worship of the phallus continues. It is believed that barren couples conceive after a visit to the monastery, due to which hundreds of barren couples visit the monastery.
This tour could also be called the Fertility tour and will take you to the bastion of the Divine Madman, which was built in the 15th century.
Apart from this, Bhutanese also believe that blessings from great Lamas (Buddhist masters) can also make a barren couple conceive. During this trip, you will also meet people who will explain why and how this happens.
