The temple is located at Kurjey in the Chokhor valley in Bumthang district. It is 15 minutes drive from Chamkhar town The history of the temples at Kurjey is associated with Sindhu Raja and Guru Rinpoche. Sindhu Raja invited Guru Rinpoche from Nepal to Bhutan. Upon invitation, Guru Rinpoche visited Bumthang and meditated in a cave that resembled a pile of vajras (dorjis). After subduing the evil spirits and demons, imprints of the Guru Rinpoche’s body remained. Thereafter, the name came to be known as Kurjey meaning-imprint of the body.
