The kuensel Phodrang welcomes you to Thimphu's charming town to a 51-meter-high gold-plated steel statue of Buddha Dordenma. The Buddha Point, which was the palace of the thirteenth Druk, Sherab Wangchuck, and housing the Shakyamuni Buddha, is also known as the Buddha Point. The statue was erected to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the fourth King Jigme Singye Wangchuck, as well as to fulfil two ancient prophesies from the 8th and 12th centuries, according to which a massive Buddha statue will be erected in the region to bring peace and happiness to the globe.
