It was divined that the supine demons was causing obstruction to the spread of Buddhism, and Mandir were constructed on her body parts that spread across Tibet, Bhutan and the borderlands.

Other, lesser-known Mandir in Bhutan have been shattered, but it is believed that, among others, Kongchogsum in Bumthang, Khaine in Lhuntse and two Mandir in Haa District may have part of these 108 temples.
