Paro-Tshchu

Paro Tshechu, a festival dedicated to Guru Rinpoche, is considered as a major attraction.  People come from far and near to participate in the festivity. On the last day of the festival, a gigantic thangkha (embroidered painting) is displayed to the public. These paintings are impressive examples of Buddhist art and never fail to amaze people. They are considered so sacred that simply seeing them cleanses one’s soul. It is believed that participating in the festivities will bring happiness in one’s life.
