The Trans-Border Experience. Day 3

First of all, I want to thank all off you for sticking to this journey till day 3. And by the way, I did visit the monastry. As I entered the premise, there happened to be ritual place, that’s shown below. People make a wish and bring those things to the monastry and tie them across the ground. 1 rope with all those cloths in it is needed for 1 wish. 

The monastry was so well located that we could see India from there. It was actually so well placed on the mountain to give great views. There was a royal house near the monastry which is unfortunately not publicly accessible. The guards always stay on alert and they step forward telling that the area is restricted. 

There is a tradition in Bhutan (more like a compulsion), that every building must house the picture of the king. Not to be interfering in international affairs but it seemed rather pathetic and a little attention craving act by the royal family to enforce such a norm. 

So, I had a great and refreshing time in Bhutan. It was time for my train back to kolkata. So, I had to leave. So I said, until next time. And as a souvenir I brought 1 ngultrum with me. It’s the currency of Bhutan. And also a memory of mine.
