Buddha Dordenma Statue

This massive statue  measures in at a height of 51.5 meters, making it one of the largest statues of Buddha in the world! The Buddha Dordenma is located atop a hill in Kuenselphodrang Nature Park and overlooks the Thimphu Valley. The statue houses over one hundred thousand smaller Buddha statues, each of which, like the Buddha Dordenma itself, are made of bronze and gilded in gold.

When visiting the capital city of Thimphu, many of our BCF teachers hike up to view this giant statue!
