This is the newly renovated Bar Lhakhang located at the Centre of Trong village, Buli. The old Lhakhang that was constructed by the Chudrak Lama Sonam Gyaltshen was deteriorated so the Gewog Administration, Khentruel Garab Dorji and the people of Buli, constructed the new Lhakhang.The Lhakhang was the seat of Fourth Terton Rigzin Pema Lingpa, Whereby we see a small spot with round pileup stone below the Lhakhang, where he was doing the work of smithy.
