While Bhutan is one of the smallest countries in the world, its cultural diversity and richness are profound.
As such, strong emphasis is laid on the promotion and preservation of its unique culture. By protecting and nurturing Bhutan’s living culture it is believed that it will help guard the sovereignty of the nation.
The most striking thing for any visitor who lands for the first time in Bhutan is the rich cultural heritage as well as variety of the country that has survived the ravishing effects of modern changes. Bhutanese culture is evident not only in the dzongs, stupas statues and paintings but also in the nature, lifestyle of the people, villages and the celebration of festivals.
