According to his chart, Lama Ngawang Chhogyel sent a valuable statue of Jetsuen Milarepa from his residence Druk Ralung to Tshamdra Gonpa on the request of Lama Ngawang Drukpa. After reaching the statue here at Dordey Dzong the Milarepa holy water has emerged. This site was then selected as a religious center and constructed the Dzong with the help of Tibetan carpenters. Accordingly, Lama Ngawang Chhogyel made a seat there. Later the people of Dawakha took care of it by appointing the caretaker of the temple for management works..
was made easily accessible by bringing next to the Dzong with the help of water pump. This holy water is known for its magical healing power. Many Bhutanese fetches this holy water and I saw so many people with vehicle collecting this water.
Entering the courtyard you will see a very sacred monastery at the edge of the cliff in the direction where the Dzong faces.
The Guru Thogam is like a treasure of the dzong. According to Lam Ugyen Dorji during the time of Lang Dharma, the religious teaching had been deteriorated little. At the time of deterioration of a religious teaching started, Lang Dharma pulled out his own sword and said that if it is a sacred statue of Guru, must show the sign indicating that it is Guru and if it isn't, then should show a sign indicating it is wrong.
Then when Lang Dharma pull out his sword, his left ear was cut which signifies that he had put his sword on his own ear. Form there, Guru Thogamspoke then said that it need not be thrown in the water nor burn in the fire because all the religious objects were sacred and therefore, was kept in Tibet. After sometimes those who were able to justify said that Guru Nuidhen Dorjee as his share of sacred statue. Guru Nuidhen Dorjee sent his followers down in a sequence one by one. One of his disciples who was very talented in every field, Lama Ngawang Chhogyel was greatly related with the religion. At that time Guru Nuidhen Dorjee in sequence passed through their hand one by one and then reached to Lama Ngawang Chhogyel's hands.
