Where is it?
Moved from Taktshang
To avoid confusion, I moved this article from Taktshang to Paro Taktsang (spa phro stag tshang) / (spa gro stag tshang) ). Taktsang Senge Samdup (stag tshang seng ge bsam grub) in the Paro valley of Bhutan is only one of thirteen taktsang, or "Tiger Lair", sacred caves in Tibet and Bhutan established and blessed by Guru Padmasambhava.

Although this monastery is at a sacred site associated with the Nyingma tradition - and, prior to the time of Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, there was formerly a shrine built there by a Nyingma lama belonging to the Katok tradition - since the 17th century it has been a Drukpa Kagyu establishment.

Providing you can source it add it. You'll have to ask an admin to move the page back.♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:25, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
Moved Festival Section
I've moved the festival section that was in this article to the Rinpung Dzong (Paro Dzong) article where it properly belongs as the Tsechu festival mentioned and illustrated is held there not at Paro Taksang.
Slight problem with a sentence under "Other structures within the precincts"
Under "Other structures within the precincts":
"Taktshang Zangdo Pari is the place where Padmasmbahava’s wife, known as the “Fairy of Wisdom”, Yashe Tshogyal (Ye-shes mtsho-rgyal), the founder of the Mon, a convent, by the same name as Taktshang and also two other convents."
Taktshang Zangdo Pari is the place where Padmasmbahava’s wife [did what]? Just like saying "That tree is where Bill, otherwise known as Robert."
Is it meant to be "Taktshang Zangdo Pari is the place where Padmasmbahava’s wife, known as the “Fairy of Wisdom”, Yashe Tshogyal (Ye-shes mtsho-rgyal), the founder of the Mon, [named] a convent, by the same name as Taktshang[, as well as] two other convents." (Still a bit grammar iffy... what should the sentence actually mean?)
