Bhutanese Buddhist pray wheels at Chimi Lhakang Monastery

Spin Bhutanese Buddhist pray wheels at Chimi Lhakang Monastery to recite prayers on your Bhutan holiday tours.

A prayer wheel is a cylindrical wheel on a spindle, often made from metal, wood, stone, leather or coarse cotton. Traditionally, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is written in Sanskrit on the outside of the wheel. According to Tibetan Buddhist tradition, spinning a wheel will have much the same effect as orally reciting the prayers.
