The Ritou Temple located in the middle of the Yamdrok Lake has been coined the “world’s loneliest temple” as it’s 161 kilometers away from the nearest town.
This far-off temple is looked after by a solitary monk Ahwang Pincuo.
According to foreign media, the temple, coined “the stone on the mountain” has a near 1000-year history and has always been looked after by a single monk.
In accordance with tradition, when the monk dies, someone else will take his place and take over his daily rituals.
As the nearest village to the temple is 5 kilometers away, Ahwang’s days usually consists of chanting sutras, meditating and getting water from the lake to the temple.
Social media users were quick to comment their envy for the monk’s reclusive lifestyle. Another interesting feature of the temple is that it’s said the centuries-old rock that form the temple have healing powers that can cure all types of diseases.
In addition, the nighttime scenes and skies are also incredibly beautiful, making it a good compensation for anyone living there in solitude.
