    Have a picture ready in your phone that you want memorialized in a Bhutanese stamp. They will download it and print you 12 stamps with a Tigers Nest background. You can keep them as a souvenir or actually use them to send a postcard!

    The National Memorial Chorten was built in memory of Third Druk Gyalpo and is dedicated to World Peace.
    The Thimphu Chorten is a nice place to visit that is located near Thimphu city center. When we had arrived, there was a nice size crowd already here - turning the prayer wheels, walking around the Stupa and paying tribute.
    The atmosphere at the Stupa was peaceful and relaxing - the grounds around the Stupa is like a well manicured park area - green grass and nice ambiance.

    This place is must visit for me at least once in a year to make offering and seek blessings from the local local deity as I was born in and brought up in Thimphu. Almost all kids who are born in Thimphu and was brought here after 3 days of birth by their parents have to do the same. Am Sure everyone will understand why is it so?

    But for Tourist if your are spiritual and is seeking blessings can always visit.
    Dont forget to carry your Kabney and Rachu if your are bhutanese. Foreigners i think its exceptional.

    This center has 3 or 4 weavers working on traditional Bhutanese cloth at all times. The work is intricate and fascinating. Upstairs is a shop to purchase traditional clothing, scarves and tchotchkes. Prices are fair.

    Although Mr. Tenzin finally had no time to meet us in person after several "false alarms" saying that he would come, the whole trip was fantastic under his arrangements. Bhutan obviously is a place worthy of visiting with its original landscapes, ethos of people, and marvelous cultural heritages. Our tour guide Chogyala is a great guide, a handsome young man and a pious Buddhist as well who took good care of us with patience, gentleness and professionality. Not only this, he also shared his interesting life stories with us which made him a "real" person whom you can be related to, rather than just anyone whom you could ran across in any trip. Our diver Ugine is a shy big boy with a very kind heart who helped us a lot, for instance, when we needed the coats because we were frozen during watching the festival dance, he volunteered to walk all the way down the hill to fetch them. All these kindness and warmness are marked in our hearts. I admire those people who would live authenticly to themselves. So whenever we entered a temple, Chogyala kneeled down right away to practice his belief before showing us around, I smiled and appreciated what he was doing, although I am a Christian not a Buddhist. This kind of authenticity is far better than the beautiful landscape which you may be able to see anyway by yourself. It reflects the spirit of those people living in such a religious hence peaceful country. Like always, the people is the meaning of a traveling.

    A nice tribute to the present king by his father which only shows how much nature is treasured and loved in this kingdom. A beautiful place for family and children specially.
