Experience the Ancient Living Culture of Bhutan Tshechu (Festival)

Tshechu is a Buddhist festival in honour of Buddhist Saint Padmasambhava, popularly known as ‘Guru Rimpoche’, the saint who introduced Buddhism to Bhutan. A Tshechu draws hundreds of Bhutanese people in a spirit of reverence, blessing, festivity and celebration, and is one of the best ways to discover the rich cultural heritage of Bhutan. The sacred celebration comes to life with colour, music, dance and drama as villagers and townspeople gather to witness the masked and sword dances and other sacred rituals. These events, most of which are performed by monks in colourful and elaborate costumes, bring blessings to the onlookers, while also instructing them about Buddhist Dharma.

There are various Tsechus held all year around at temples, Dzongs and monasteries throughout Bhutan.
