Nyelung Drachaling is a 14th Century Buddhist temple in Phobjikha Valley. It was founded by Kuenkhen Longchen Rabjam, a Nyingma Dzogchen master and treasure-finder. The chapel houses remarkable relics such as an old thangka painting whose back bears the handprints of Longchenpa printed in his own nose blood, a fossilised horse's tooth, a golden statue made in Longchenpa's own image, and an iron skillet made by Pema Lingpa, with his thumbprints in it.

This is a must visit place for culture lovers as travelers having interest in magic and tales find it interesting.
