A website dedicated to His Majesty

An overwhelming number of people who visit this website are here because they googled for His Majesty. No price for guessing which page is the most popular on this site: the page about the Royal Family. In light of this search pattern, I am thinking of designing a website completely dedicated to His Majesty.

His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck - A digital mosaic by Gelay.

His Majesty, and the Royal Family has touched and changed countless lives. My website will be a celebration of compassion which cannot be more personified then by His Majesty.

My website will have:

  • Facts about His Majesty
  • Facts about the Royal Family
  • A way for people to pay their respects by writing tributes to His Majesty, and the Royal Family. So that you can share your own personal story about your King.
  • A lot of people have private collection of rare photographs of the Royal Family. The website will have a system of sharing these rare and historical photographs.

So what do you think? 

What am I missing? Please leave a comment.

His Majesty The Druk Gyalpo Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck

It is the end – and the beginning – of history. On the morning of November 1, the third day of the ninth Bhutanese month, His Majesty the King will be empowered as the Druk Gyalpo in a unique and sacred empowerment ceremony, which symbolises his transcendence of the ordinary and the temporal and the personification of divine wisdom.

His Majesty will receive the Dar Na-Nga, a special arrangement of the primary colours that signify the five elements. The ceremony will take place in the Machhen Lhakhang, and the Dar Na-Nga will be symbolically conferred by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, in the presence of the fourth Druk Gyalpo, with the empowerment prayer chanted by His Holiness the Je Khenpo.

The Druk Gyalpo – Everything Bhutan

About 2,500 years ago a Prince walked away from his Palace, his material comforts, his Throne. He did it to help his people, through education and through spirituality. He eventually showed them, and the world, the path to enlightenment.

Less than two years ago, another King walked away from his Throne. He also did it to help his people, having paved the way for his son to take over the responsibility to guide his kingdom into the future.
