People and Culture

Culture
Bhutan has a mosaic of rich culture and heritage. Unlike most countries, the tradition and culture of the Bhutanese has remained in tack and till today the rituals, festivities, dances and songs are performed much the same way as was done centuries ago. Every community has their own losar or new year at different times of the year which is celebrated with great pomp. People dress in new clothes and wear their best jewelry and gather to watch and perform songs and dances.

Social traditions like the Driglam Namzha (age old social etiquette and code of conduct) are followed even today. With the passage of time, the Bhutanese traditional etiquette and value system has become deeply rooted in its society and has enriched the country’s cultural identity.
