TSHECHU FESTIVALS

At different times of the year, the annual festivals known as "Tshechus" take place in different parts of Bhutan. Tshechus are festivals extolling the great deeds of the Saint Padmasambhava also known as "Guru Rinpoche," in Bhutan. These great deeds are all believed to have taken place on the 10th day of the month which is the meaning of the word 'Tshechu', even though all Tshechus do not, in practice, take place on 10th day. All the districts, dzongs and a large number of villages in the east have an annual Tshechu which attact people from all over the World.

Tshechus are celebrated for several days, between three to five days according to their location, and are the occasion for dances that are clearly defined in religious content. They can be performed by monks, laymen or gomchens and the repertory is the same practically everywhere.
