Talo tshechu, like other tshechus, is a three-day event that happens at Talo Monastery. This festival is also conducted on the 10th day of Bhutanese calendar’s lunar month. This festival is well known for its mask dances the atsara (divine clown) dances. An equally popular attraction, which has a deep religious and historical significance, it is the Zhungdra (classical dance) by the Talo dance troupe. The three songs of Mani Sum, which comprise the Zhungdra set, are performed as the closing item on each day of the three days of the Tshechu.
