Thimphu Tshechu- 30 September-2nd October 2017 and Dasai

Thimphu-TshechuAll government offices and schools in the capital city, Thimphu, will be closed from 30 September to 2 October 2017 to observe one of the biggest festivals in the country- the Thimphu Tshechu. This festival is held in the capital city for three days beginning on 10th day of the 8th month of lunar calendar.

This Tshechu is witnessed by thousands of people many of which travel from neighboring Dzongkhags (districts) to attend the festivities. The actual Tshechu is preceded by days and nights of prayer and rituals to invoke the gods.

To farmers, the Tshechu is also seen as a break from farm life. It is an occasion to celebrate, receive blessings and pray for health and happiness.

The RNR Family would like to wish all a Happy Thimphu Tshechu and a Happy Dussehra too!!
