Bhutan, a landlocked Himalayan kingdom, boasts a rich cultural tapestry deeply intertwined with its Buddhist heritage. Central to Bhutanese culture is the concept of Gross National Happiness, emphasizing well-being over material wealth. Festivals like Tshechus celebrate religious events, featuring masked dances and vibrant costumes, while traditional music and dance, such as the Cham and Boedra, showcase Bhutan's artistic prowess. The architecture reflects a distinctive Bhutanese style, with intricately painted dzongs and monasteries dotting the landscape. The national dress, known as the "gho" for men and "kira" for women, is worn with pride, preserving Bhutan's unique identity.
