The guru at that point mediated in the holy cave that is the site of the Pelphug Lhakhang today. As per Tantric Buddhist mythology, the vanquished local deities turned into the defenders of the dharma and one of them, Singey Samdrup, is perceived today as the guardian deity of Taktsang. Guru Rinpoche is also acceptable to have concealed among the stones of Taktsang different types of Dharma treasures known as Ters, which were bound to be found later by Tertons (treasure pioneers) for the engendering of Dharma. Taktsang was seriously harmed by flame on Sunday 19th April 1998. The ruler directed its quick restoration soon after the fire. The imperial order directed that the first aura, validness and structural magnificence must be safeguarded at all costs.
