Festivals of Bhutan
The most important Bhutanese festival is Tshechu and every city has its own Tshechu, which lasts for 3-5 days. It falls on a particular day of a Lunar month (for example, the 10th day of 2nd Lunar month). Tschechus are held to honor Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava), who brought a Tantric form of Buddhism to Bhutan in the 8th century. The last day of the Tshechu usually witnesses the unfurling of a silk thongdrel. Seeing the thongdrel believes to wash away one’s sins.
The people of Bhutan are very religious and peaceful and also live in great harmony with nature. As their traditional dress, Bhutanese men wear ‘Gho’ which is a long robe similar to the Tibetan chuba and women wear ‘Kira’ which is an ankle length dress and because these dresses are made up of cotton or wool, they are comfortable to wear.
Food of Bhutan
The National dish of Bhutan is Ema Datshi. It is eaten almost in every meal and throughout the country because Bhutanese people love Chilies. They would not enjoy a meal that was not spicy. So Chilies are most important for every dish for Bhutanese people. Ema Datshi consists of cheese and chilies. Momos are yet another Bhutanese delicacy, and they are stuffed with pork, beef or cabbages.
Architecture of Bhutan
Bhutan Architecture consists of Dzong and everyday varieties. Found mainly in Bhutan and Tibetan areas of China, Dzong architecture is a distinctive type of fortress architecture and the traditional architecture includes earthen walls, Sloped roofs, and wooden work. No iron nail is used in the construction and Phalluses on the wall are considered sacred.
