In Bhutan, the Religious Festival aka Tshechu means “tenth day”. These events are celebrated on the tenth day of the month of lunar calendar corresponding to Guru Rinpoche’s birthday.
These colorful events are held in temples, monastries and dzongs throughout the country in different months. The locals believe that everyone must attend a Tsehchu and witness the mask dances at least once in a life time in order to receive blessings and clear the sins.
This 3 days festival celebration is one of the grandest festivals in Bhutan. It is held at Tashichhodzong in Thimphu where prayers and rituals were performed to invoke the gods. The locals and tourists dress in Bhutan’s National Costume and gather to witness religious mask dances, receive blessings, and be entertained by Atsura.
