Bhutan is a country which nestled in the eastern Himalayas region. The country has been visited by great many saints, mystics, scholars and pilgrims over the centuries who came for their personal elucidation and also blessed the land and its people with an invaluable spiritual and cultural legacy that has shaped every surface of Bhutanese lives. Visitors and guests to the country will be surprised that the culture and the traditional lifestyle is still richly intact and at the degree to which it permeates all strands of modern day secular life. From the traditional woven garments to the prayer flags on high mountain slopes, from the built environment to the natural environment, from the religious mask dances to the folk dances, this cultural heritage is proudly evident and offers a unique cultural setting.
