Haa Valley In Bhutan



HAA: Although, just across a mountain and 2.5hrs drive away from Paro, Haa opened as a tourism destination only since 2001. It is a small but beautiful valley and modernisation still hasn’t really touched it so much making it very traditional steeped in mystery and culture. The valley is considered as a ‘Bae-yul’ a secret hidden place identified by Guru Padmasambhava, that will serve as a refuge at the dawn of the new beginning. The Indian Army’s HQ in Bhutan is located here.

Meri Puensum: The 3 peculiar almost rectangular mountains representing 3 deities overlooks the valley and gives it an almost mystical feeling to be there.

Haa Wangchuklo Dzong: Originally, Haa Dumchog Dzong stood where Wangchuklo Dzong now stands. It was built in 1895 with labor contribution from the people of Haa under the leadership of the first Haa Dungpa. It was built as part of the four defence fortresses, and by another account, to suppress the serpent deity that troubled the people of that region. Later in 1913, the Dzong was destroyed by fire and a new Dzong, which was named as Dzongsar Wangchuklo Dzong was built by Gongzin Ugyen Dorji. However, another new structure was built in 1968 under the reign of the 3rd King that currently houses the administration of the District. The Head Quarters of the Indian Army residing in Bhutan is housed in the Dzong. The inspiration for the Dzong was taken from Wangcicholing Palace in Bumthang and looks similar. Few chortens were also built to appease the serpent deities of the locality and it can still be seen nearby. .The central tower houses a temple and the Thongdrol (huge wall scroll painting) is unfurled here during Haa Tsechu.

Lhakhang Karpo: The name translates to the ‘White Temple’ and is one of the twin monasteries along with Lhakhang Nagpo. It houses the district’s monastic body unlike other districts where the monastic body resides in the Dzong. It is believed to have been constructed in the 7th Century AD by a Tibetan King when he ordered 108 temples to be built in 1 nights to subdue an ogress. Both Lhakhang Karpo and Nagpo don’t have recorded history

Lhakhang Nagpo: This is the twin temple of Lhakhang Karpo and is located about 5minutes walk up the hill from there. The name translates to the ‘Black Temple’ and is believed to have been built during the same time as the White temple below. Both Lhakhang Karpo and Nagpo don’t have recorded history

Ap Chungdu: He is considered the local deity of the valley and is believed to be quite fierce and very protective of his subjects and ruthless those who oppose.
