Bhutanese Monk at the Jambay Lhathang Trmple finds meaning in a solitary life by making tormas for the sacrificial butter cakes. The temple built in the 7th century is said to be one of the 108 temples built by King Songtsen Goenpo on a single day, to pin down an ogress to earth forever.

Location: Bumthang, Bhutan
