Lhamoi Dromchoe

Tashichho Dzong, THIMPHU

Thimphu Dromchoe precedes the popular three-day Thimphu Tshechu. The Drubchen showcases the sacred dances dedicated to the protecting deity of Bhutan, Palden Lhamo. Besides the Thimphu Tsechu, Thimphu also celebrates a one-day festival known as the Thimphu Drubchen which is also commonly known as Thimphu Lhamoi Dromchoe. The day-long festival dates back to the 17th century.

It was first introduced by Kuenga Gyeltshen in 1710, which was recognized as the reincarnation of Jampel Dorji, son of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel. The Dromchoe is celebrated 3 days prior to the Thimphu Tshechu.

The Drubchen showcases the sacred dances dedicated to the chief protective deity of Bhutan, Palden Lhamo. Legend has it, that the deity Pelden Lhamo appeared before Kuenga Gyeltshen and performed the dances while he was in meditation. Based on these dances, Kuenga Gyaltshen initiated the Dromchoe.
