The Chagri monastery was built over 400 years ago by the founder of the Bhutanese state, Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel and was the first Bhutanese monastic order to be established. The installation of a golden pinnacle is an important part of the restoration of the monastery, which started in 2016.

The monastery is located on a cliff and is accessible by a steep mountain trail.
