Great Buddha Dordenma

Sitting on top of Bhutan’s capital city, Thimphu, there’s an enormous Buddha statue known as the Great Buddha Dordenma. At 52m high, it’s one of the world’s largest and tallest Buddha statues.

Bhutan constructed this wonderful statue to commemorate the 60th anniversary of its 4th King, Jigme Singye Wangchuck. They manufactured the statue out of bronzed and plated it in gold at a cost of more than US$100 million.

The main road leading to the site is called Buddha Point, hence many visitors actually use it to refer to the actual statue.

If you’re visiting Thimphu, this is an attraction that you shouldn’t miss. If it’s not in your itinerary, do request from your travel operator to include it as it’s a short drive away from Thimphu’s city centre.
