FESTIVALS

One of the most colourful festivals in the Bhutanese calendar is the Tshechu (festival) performed in all the districts and in many monasteries and temples spread throughout Bhutan. The occasion is known as Tshechu - literally "10th day" - as it is normally performed on the 10th day of a month and is an occasion for the village people to gather round and partake in the festive occasion.

The Tshechu is to commemorate the events in the life of Guru Rinpoche who is revered as the second Buddha in Bhutan. Classical dances in Bhutan are reflected in the religious mask pageants and ritual dances. With the introduction of Buddhism in the 8th century AD by Guru Rinpoche from Tibet, ritual and mask dances gained roots in the Bhutanese system as part of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. There are many other festivals distinct to different villages which are mostly animistic in nature, performed by mediums. The festivals are moments for social get-together where people wear their finest clothes and jewelleries.
