The bridge which crossed to the Tachogang Lhakhang (literally the temple of the excellent horse) near Chhuzom in Bhutan. This is one of temples which were founded by the Tibetan saint, Thangton Gyelpo, who also designed and erected many iron suspension bridges like this one in the early fifteenth century and thus made some parts of Bhutan accessible for the first time.
