The Paro Tshechu is held every spring and is one of the most colorful and significant events in Paro Dzongkhag (district). Perhaps the most popular of the Tshechus, this event has attracted a lot of visitors, both local and tourists.
Owing to its close proximity to other western districts, the Paro Tsechu is considered a major attraction for people who travel from neighboring districts to participate in the festivity.
The grand conclusion of the 5 day festival is in the wee hours of the morning on the last day, when the monks ceremoniously display a gigantic embroidered thanka painting of the Guru Throngdel, in the backdrop of myriad butter lamps. This act of just looking at this beautiful painting is considered so instrumental in cleansing one’s sins that many make it a reverential routine to visit this festival every year.
