Bhutan is the only country in the world to retain the Vajrayana form of Mahayana Buddhism as its religion. The Buddhist faith has played a fundamental role in the cultural, ethical & sociological development of Bhutan & its people. Annual festivals (Tsechus & Dromchoes) are spiritual occasions in each district. The Dzongs, which were built in every districts in the Middle Ages as fortresses function as the centre of both religious & secular activities now a days. The district monk body practices their faith through dzongs.  The dzongs remain most of the time closed & are open to visitors during festival time for preserving kingdom's religious environment. 
Chortens (Stupas) are most common throughout the kingdom & they ward off evil spirits & protect from imminent danger. They represent the mind of Buddha symbolically & remind people of the possibility of & the path of enlightenment. Even more common are the prayer flags on mountain slopes, bridges & high passes. Transmitting prayers to the Gods & keeping up a constant communication with the heavens, prayer flags fluttering in the wind are a simple reminder of the clarity of the Buddhist faith.

Important places to visit :

Situated on the banks of Wongchu River, the capital town is the political hub of this tiny kingdom. An enjoyable way experiencing Bhutanese life from close quarters is a walk through its streets. It is a joy to watch the hustle & bustle of the streets. With no modern high rises - the government has decreed that all the building in the town be built in the traditional Bhutanese style - the city is like an open museum which provides a window to the craftsmanship of the local artisans. Tashidzong, one of the most impressive l&marks & arguably the most impressive building in the country, houses the Bhutanese throne room & serves as the summer residence of the venerated monastic community. Other interesting sites include the Traditional Painting School where age-old Bhutanese art & craft is kept alive & passed on to the forthcoming generation. The Memorial Chorten, an important monument in Thimpu, built in memory of His Majesty, the third king of Bhutan is also worth visiting. A delightful day on the outskirts of Thimpu is a visit to the Tango & Cheri Monasteries. Simtokha Dzong, 6 kms from the city limits, is the kingdom's oldest dzong, which now houses the school for Buddhist studies. 

The gateway to the dragon Kingdom, Paro is one of the most beautiful valleys in the country. The first thing you will notice as you disembark is the transparent purity of air & the absence of noise. Paro valley has kept its bucolic nature in spite of the airport & the existence of development projects. Apart from being the highest agricultural yielding place in the kingdom it is also home to the national museum & one of the oldest & celebrated dzongs in Bhutan . Perched on a hill overlooking the Paro Valley, Rinpung Dzong is not just an architectural marvel but also a religious & secular center. Built in the 15th century it houses ancient Bhutanese artifacts & history. The Taktsang monastery, one of the most venerated religious sites in Bhutan , is a wonder in itself. The Guru Rinpoche, the founding father of the Bhutanese strain of Mahayana Buddhism, is said to have arrived here several millennium ago on the back of a legendary tigress & medicated for three months in a cave where a monastery was later built. Clinging to the sheer face about three hours from Paro, this monastery also known as the tiger's nest can be reached either by pony or on foot. Paro is believed to be one of the first valleys to have received the imprint of Buddhism.

he erstwhile capital of the country Punakha lies on a sprawling valley. Spectacular views of the Himalayas can be seen on the road from Thump to Punakha Dzong, where the Rho Chu Rivers converge below this winter home of the central monk body. 

The most visible landmark is the Punakha Dzong built by the first Shabdrung of Bhutan in 1637. The old custom of moving from Thimpu to Punakha & back is still followed by the Je Khenpo (Head of Bhutan's religious order) & the monk body. The migration is a culturally enriching experience.

Below rich cattle pastures at the junction of the Mo cho & Tang Chu rivers, a striking Dzong guards this windy valley.

Four-hours drive from Wangdue Phodrang, Trongsa, the ancestral home of the royal family, is a sleepy village with a leisurely paced life. It is also a welcome rest to travelers. Like everywhere else the most dominating landmark is the dzong that dominates the valley, dwarfing the surrounding buildings. Situated high on a ridgeline  the Trongsa Dzong, is one of the most beautiful sights, of which you will never tire. Built in 1648 the Dzong worked as a defensive fortress with a labyrinth of temples & offces.  


The spiritual capital of Bhutan , Bumthang, is shrouded in religious legends. Th e heart of Bumthang is Jakar with its dzong. A number of smaller monasteries dot the hills surrounding the valley. Tales of Guru Padmasambhava & Guru Rinpoche, whose bodily marks are impressed upon a rock in Kurjey, ring through the air. With religion holding sway in this region the air is replete with the chants of hymns, prayer . ags . uttering in the breeze, monks playing among themselves. It is also the traditional home of the great Buddhist teacher Pema Lingpa to whose descendants the present dynasty traces its ancestry.

Cambodia which has a rich culture dating back many centuries when the Angkor Civilization was the region's most developed area has now emerged as a very popular tourists destination & it is now at the frontier of tourism & has become a popular travel destination in Southeast Asia. Cambodia's amazing sun-drenched beaches, enchanting scenery, diverse flora & fauna & grand temples are among the very best in this region & famous tourist attractions in Cambodia are simply unique &  interesting & not found anywhere else in the region.

Important places to visit :

Angkor Wat
There are few places on earth to match the splendour of Angkor Wat. The temple is the largest religious buildings ever constructed & is truly one of the wonders of the world 

Believed to have been undertaken as a temple & mausoleum for King Suryavarman II at the peak of the Khmer empire in the first half of the 12th century, Angkor Wat is the best-preserved of the Angkorian temples. As with other Angkorian temples & walled cities such as Angkor Thom, the central theme of Khmer architecture revolved around the idea of the temple-mountain. By the time building on Angkor Wat was begun early in the 12th century, this had been elaborated to a central tower surrounded by four smaller towers. 

The central monument represents the mythical Mount Meru, the holy mountain at the centre of the universe, which was home to the Hindu god Vishnu. The five towers symbolise Mount Meru's five peaks. It is difficult to express in words the enormous size of Angkor Wat, but it can be hinted at in part by a look at the scale of the complex. The temple is surrounded by a moat which makes the one around the Tower of London, built at roughly the same time, look like nothing more than a garden pond. At 190m wide & forming a rectangle 1.5km by 1.3km, it is hard to imagin z s around the walls of the outer gallery & the hundred figures of devadas & apsaras. 

This intricately carved gallery tells stories of the Hindu gods & of Suryavarman II's successes on the battlefield. A visit to Angkor Wat is the experience of a lifetime & will be cherished forever. 

Phnom Bakheng
Dominating the flat landscape, this 10th Century mountain temple is the most popular spot in the area to watch a classic sunset over Angkor Wat & the surrounding forest. 

Angkor Thom
This huge walled complex was the centre of the world's largest city in 1200. The royal city was first built under the reign of Udayadityavarman II in the 11th Century. It was destroyed when the Chams from Vietnam invaded, sacking the city, & was subsequently rebuilt by King Jayavarman VII at the end of the 12th Century.Its vast walls, some 6m wide, 8m high & 13km in length contain many monuments. 

The Bayon
Surrounded by faces on all sides, visitors never forget the Bayon. This symbolic temple mountain, built by Jayavarman VII, is situated in the centre of the city of Angkor Thom. 

It is a three-tiered pyramid with its entrance facing east. The central shrine is surrounded by 54 towers, all crowned by gigantic, enigmatic faces, representing Lokiteshvara, but withthe features of Jayavarman VII. They gaze out to the north, south, east & west. Unlike his predecessors who had worshipped the Hindu deities of Shiva & Vishnu, Jayavarman VII adopted Mahayana Buddhism as the fount of royal divinity. This sets the Bayon apart from many other Angkorian monuments.

The Baphuon
This perfect pyramidal temple, built by Udayadityarvarman II, was the most poorly constructed of all the temples in Angkor. From the remaining ruins, it is possible to see how imposing it was. This temple mount was dedicated to Shiva, but in its reliefs many motives from Vishnu's life can be seen. Complexed work continues at the Baphuon to preserve it as a partial ruin complete with a huge reclining Buddha, added in the 16th Century. 

Terrace of Elephant
Terrace of the Elephants & Terrace of the Leper King. At the North of the Baphuon lies the original royal city, of which very little remains. The first terrace owes its name to the outstanding depiction of elephants, & was used as a viewing gallery at royal events, while the second terrace takes its name from the magnificent sculpture of King Yasovarman, popularly known as the Leper King. The original of this statue is now in the National Museum.

Ta Prohm

This temple is perhaps the most atmospheric of all Angkor's treasures. The temple was a monastery built by Jayavarman VII as a residence for his mother. Ta Prohm has been left to the destructive power of nature by archaeologists to demonstrate the awesome power of nature. It has been largely consumed by the jungle & as you climb through the dilapidated stone structures you see many giant trees growing out of the top of the temple itself. 

At every turn you expect to see Indiana Jones or Lara Croft step out from behind a fallen pillar. It is one of the most regularly visited temples, with visitors often arriving during the middle of the day to take advantage of the protective forest canopy above the ruined temple. Ta Prohm looks as many of the monuments did when European explorers first laid eyes on them.

Banteay Srei
This jewel of Angkor was built by a Brahman in the 10th Century & dedicated to Shiva. The famous pink sandstone structure bears a series of exquisite sculptures, lintels & friezes. These, it is said, must have been carved by women as the detail is too fine for the hands of a man. This gives the origin of the Khmer name, Fortress of the Women. While it may be a small temple complex, the beauty of Banteay Srei is found not in the scale, but the detail. Many believe the intricate carving is the best example of Khmer classical art in existence. 

Kbal Spean
Better known as the River of a Thousand Lingas, this is an area of riverbed carvings & lush jungle. There are several carvings of Hindu deities in the sandstone here, as well as thousands of lingas in the riverbed itself. This site was only ‘rediscovered' in 1969 & is a tranquil place with an attractive waterfall. It is 50km north of Siem Reap.

Banteay Chhmar
This temple is being developed to receive visitors & is a big complex meaning Narrow Fortress. It was badly looted in 1998, but efforts are now underway to preserve what remains. It is 160km northwest of Siem Reap & can now be done as a long day trip or two-day excursion.
