The History of Bhutan

This story line leads from the early history of Bhutan, on to the founding of the state in the 17th century and, from there, up to the modern monarchy. These pages do not only cover the progression of historical events, but also present cultural expressions, for example, traditional handicrafts, architecture or religious concepts in their respective historical contexts.


Hyperlinks repeatedly also lead to the areas covering »Buddhism« and the »Sacred Landscapes«, thus making this tightly woven reciprocal interconnection of history, religion and mythology visible.
