Lhakhang Kharpo

Buddhist Monastery in Haa

Haa's 50-strong monk body is housed not in the dzong (fort-monastery) but in the Lhakhang Kharpo (White Chapel) complex, just south of the dzong. The atmospheric central chapel has statues of the Tselanam Sum trinity (Tsepame, Namgyelma and Drolma) and has a statue of local protector App Chhundu.
