Tour Summary

Every year, hundreds of people throng at Dechenphug temple to witness the tshechu. The day falls on the 10th day of the ninth month of the Bhutanese calendar. This tshechu is dedicated to Gayngyen Jakpa Melen, a powerful local deity in Bhutan. A portion of the holy moves incorporate Zhana-nga Cham, Genyen Kunchaam, Shazam Cham ad Ngachaam. Different social projects were performed by the artists of the Royal Academy of Performing Arts. The tshechu was first presented in 2003 under the command of His Majesty The Fourth King. The mask dances performed there will definitely fascinate you and the sound of horns and cymbals will intrigue you but most importantly, the sea of happy faces will make to feel at peace.
