Bhutan is a small and landlocked state located in the Eastern Himalaya, surrounded by China, India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Bhutan is enriched with unique culture and traditions which make it a very distinctive country in the world.
Bhutan is the only country in today’s world that still retains the Tantric form of Mahayana Buddhism as its official religion. This form of Buddhism was introduced to Bhutan by Guru Padmasambhava (the second Buddha) in the 8th century. According to legends, Guru Padmasambhava made his legendary trip from Tibet to Bhutan on the back of a flying tigress to subdue evil spirits who hindered the spread of Buddhism teachings.
The place he landed in Bhutan is known as “The Tiger’s Nest” in Paro Valley where he meditated for 3 months. Till now, this place remains as one of the most prominent and sacred places in Himalayan Buddhism. Taktsang Palphug Monastery was first built on this precipitous cliff at 3,120 meters above Paro Valley in 1692.
