This years Lha Bab Due Chen fell on the 1st of November, 2007. I visited the Thimphu Dzong and Dechenphug.
Not many people were at the Dzong – I had a very relaxed time, enough time to chat with the Koeners (monk care-taker) about statues and wall paintings.
Dechenphug was a different story. There was a queue starting from the parking lot, which snaked around and into the Lhakhang. A majority of these visitors were young boys and girls. People talk about our youth not being religiously inclined. Think again…
