Culture is one Big pridein which Bhutan takes priority to preserve and promote at all times. The unique cultural identity of Bhutan has been playing a vital role in maintaining the sovereignty and the name “Bhutan” well known to outside world. These diverse cultural practices starting from the clothes we wear, the dish we prepare, the language we speak, the house we live in and the various life styles of Bhutanese have been the driving force for all those who happened to visit the country.
Bhutan’s national dress is Gho for men and Kira for women. The Gho and Kira are decorated with beautiful patterns of flower. Many people visiting Bhutan are most of the time found wearing Bhutanese dresses which looks very beautiful and one can feel the charm of wearing it.
On formal visits to a Dzong or an office, Bhutanese men wear a scarf called kabney. Wearing of kabney is an important part of the Bhutanese decorum and should be put on in a right manner. Women on the other hand wear the scarf called rachu. They hang it over their shoulder and it is beautifully hand woven decorated with beautiful pattern of flowers with fringes at the end. It is smaller than a kabney.
Bhutanese dishes are very unique. Red rice with Phashapaa (Sliced pork) for non-vegetarians and Emma Datshi (Chiili mixed with cheese) for vegetarians served with Suja (butter tea) forms the best Bhutanese dish. Different regions have the unique way of preparing their own dishes. One can have the luxury to taste every dish prepared with passion.
Dzongkha is our national language but different regions have their own dialects. There are about 19 different languages that a people of different regions of Bhutan speak. The Bhutanese houses are built with a unique design with beautiful patterns painted on walls. Usually traditional Bhutanese houses are built without any architectural design on the paper by local carpenters.
