Festivals in the land of the Thunder Dragon are rich and happy expressions of its ancient Buddhist culture. These festivals are held in all districts in honour of Guru Rinpoche, the saint who introduced Buddhism in the 8th century to Bhutan.
Mask dances rituals are performed by monks or layman dressed in bright costume. Tshechus are held in auspicious days and month of the Bhutanese calendar. People’s deep faith and devotion make these festivals a special occasion.
