28 April 2015: Government Holiday- Zhabdrung Kuchoe

Zhabdrung-Ngawang-NamgyelAll Government offices and schools in the Kingdom of Bhutan will be closed on Tuesday 28 April 2015 to observe the Death Anniversary of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel, the Unifier of Bhutan.

Zhabdrung Kuchoe is observed on the tenth day of the third Bhutanese month. Zhabdrung Nawang Namgyel entered into meditation when he was 58 for 12 years at the Puna Dewai Chenpoi Phodrang in 1651.

Hundreds of devotees offer prayers and butter lamps to mark the Death Anniversary of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel.

At this time of natural calamity in our friendly neighbouring country of Nepal, the RNR  family joins the rest of the country in praying for the safety and wellbeing of the people affected by the Earthquake tragedy in Nepal.
