About Paro Taktsang

Taktsang Gompa is one of the holiest Buddhist shrines in Arunachal Pradesh, which stands amidst of beautiful mountain peaks. The sanctity of Taktsant Gompa is credited to Padmasambhava, who was believed to be the maverick missionary brought Buddhism to Tibet. As per the legends, Padmasambhava was a miracle maker. He was also said to be the incarnation of both Gautama Buddha and Amitabha Buddha. Taktsang Gompa is believed to be one of the few places in Arunachal Pradesh which he visited by the saint. The traces of his stay at this place can be still seen as footsteps and hoof prints on the floor of the rocky cave where he meditated. The holes on the floor of the cave at Taktsang Gompa are also believed to be the hoof prints of his horse and Padmasambhava was also supposedly flying on a tiger. Hence came the name of this place as tak means tiger and tsang meaning the place or abode.
