Dechenphug Tshechu

November 11

The tshechu venerates Gay Ngyen Jakpa Melen, a formidable guardian deity of Bhutan. Among the sacred dances showcased are the Zhananga Cham, Genyen Kunchaam, Shazam Cham, and Nga Cham, alongside a myriad of traditional and classical performances.

A unique aspect of the festival is its exclusivity, as it is the sole day in the year when foreign visitors are granted access to Dechenphu Lhakhang.
