14th century temple, Chimi Lhakhang (Chimi temple or monastery) is where I got my name. But I am still wondering how the temple got its name in the first place. I failed to find information regarding the origin of the name of the temple itself. Well, anyway in Bhutan many unborn babies get their names in the temple. Names like "Chimi" and "Kinley" are given at this temple. This temple is also well-known as the temple of fertility. Particularly women seeking blessings to beget children pay visit to Chimi Lhakhang. If you have friends around you unable to have children, suggest this place with conviction.
