Thekchhok Gompa information
Chemrey village is dominated by the beautifully proportioned Thekchhok Gompa . A maze of pathways leads up to the main complex where the central 17th-century prayer hall has wonderfully wobbly wooden pillars. The Lamalakhang above has murals atmospherically blackened to semi-invisibility by butter-lamp smoke. On the penultimate floor the Gurulakhang has contrastingly vivid murals and a 3m-high golden Padmasambhava statue encrusted with turquoise ornamentation.
