The Road IN Bhutan 21
After yesterday’s long ride, we are in Bumthang, we take off today for one of the two oldest monastery’s in the country one here and one in Paro. This one is called Drepung. I am told that this is where the first imprints of Bhuddhism began, this was built in the 7th century. Later additions to the monastery were added in the 17th century and again in the 20th century.
We lit 1000 candles in honor of our family and friends wishing all good health, happiness and long life.
