Bhutanese weddings are not always in pomp and laud, quite often it may be ceremoniously flaunted yet most are done away with little or no announcements at all. However, the vows are taken seriously and the religious rites must be performed as instructed. If one opts for a marriage that has to be authentically religious, it usually takes place in a monastery. All the weddings of Bhutan has its core in the blessings and this ceremony is mostly held in Kyichu Lhakhang (temple), located few kilometers from Amankora in the Paro valley or at the Khuruthang Lhakang near the Amankora lodge in the Punakha valley. Kyichu Lhakhang, a 7th century temple, bears splendid witness to the arrival of Buddhism in Bhutan and is one of the 108 temples built in a day by the Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo to pin down a treacherous ogress – it is one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites in Bhutan. *The price quoted is an indicative and subject to changes ounrey
