Buddha point, Thimpu - Skywatch Friday

When you walk along the streets of Thimpu, you just can't miss Buddha point on the mountains of Thimpu. It will play hide and seek as we move around Thimpu city.

 Located 6 km from the city, Buddha statue at Buddha point is the tallest sitting Buddha in the world. It is the latest attraction of Thimpu.

In local language it is called Buddha Dordenma. 51mt long Buddha statue will house more than 100,000 nos of small statues. When I visited,  construction of interiors of the structure  housing statues was going on. I didn't see any workers around.

Buddha's smile in the backdrop of blue sky surrounded by mountains overlooking Thimpu valley was such  a serene experience.

It was me , Buddha and chilling breeze. I savored the company of both.
