Paro Tshechu is the biggest festival in Bhutan and is considered one of the major tourist attractions from all around the world. The festival is celebrated annually since the 17th century in honor of Padmasambhava, the Guru Rinpoche who is believed to be the one to bring Buddhism to Bhutan in the 8th century.
The festival is held for 5 consecutive days which begins on the 10th day of Bhutan’s second lunar month every spring. The locals believe that attending the festival and witnessing Thongdrol: the painting of the Guru Rinpoche, cleanses the sins. The mask dance during the festival amuses the local viewers as well as the tourists and truly a sight to behold.
