Dungtse Lhakhang is said to have been built to subdue an ogress and bless the community.
Across the road from the small Jangsa village in Paro is the Dungtse Lhakhang. The Tibetan Buddhist saint Thangtong Gyalpo popularly regarded as the iron chain bridge builder founded this temple in 1421. The temple is said to have been built to subdue an ogress and bless the community. The temple has an extensive display of ancient murals. The central tower of the temple is chained to the roof from four directions. According to the local legend, the central tower moved and attempted a flight to Tibet during its consecration and hence had to be chained.
