An alternative legend holds that a former wife of an emperor, known as Yeshe Tsogyal, willingly became a disciple of Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambahva) in Tibet. She becomes a tigress and the Guru took back from Tibet to the current location of the Taktsang in Bhutan. In one of the caves here, Guru meditation is then performed and appeared in eight embodied forms (manifestations) and the place became a saint. Later the place became known as the "Tiger's Nest."
