Dungchen in Chizi Goenpa

Chizhi Lam first noticed the treasure horn on the balcony, which was then placed as the main relic in Dekiling Lhakhang. Since the Lam was reigning over people of Genekha and Dagana at the time, according to his vision, he took the horn wherever he went and blessed the people. The horn, which is currently at Chizhi Goenpa in Thimphu, is opened to the public once every year on the eighth month of the traditional calendar.
