The tiny village of Kilung is a twenty-minute drive from the Dzong on the route towards Kurtoe Dungkhar.  In the village you will come across the Kilung Lhakhang situated on a ridge overlooking the Kurichu River. 

This village is inhabited by the Tshanglas who migrated and settled here during the late 1880’s.It was built on the former site of the Kilung Gyalpo, a regional chieftain. This temple houses the sacred chain mall that was once used to recapture a statue that miraculously flew away from the Lhuentse Dzong.
