Insight Taktshang

Bhutan’s rich traditions of art, architecture, and handicrafts are vital aspects of our unique cultural heritage passed down from generation. Our artistic traditions have survived and flourished for many centuries. Today they form an integral part of our history, culture, and the distinctive identity of the Bhutanese people. They reflect the rich customs and social values of the people and therefore, manifest the country’s cultural identity. These artistic treasures of Bhutan are a source of pride to the nation. It is paramount that they are preserved and promoted as an integral part of the kingdom’s nation-building effort toward socio-economic development.

The Bhutanese form of art is religious and anonymous. It does not exist for itself but as a didactic function within the framework of its Mahayana Buddhist traditions. Bhutanese architecture is famous for its originality, its harmonious proportions, and its adaptations to the landscape. There is generally no planning and designing done on paper before a structure is built, no nails are used and the wood pieces are assembled in the dovetail technique.

Bhutan has been known to the outside world as a living cultural hub by the very fact of its ancient cultural tradition in vibrancy. Therefore, a Pilgrimage in Bhutan is all about gaining insight into the culture and traditional transcendence and engulfing the pristine natural environment.
