BHUTAN, the Himalaya Kingdom characteristically is formed, as far as religion and way of life are concerned, by the Mahayana Buddhism as predominant in Tibet: the Lamaistic and Tantric Buddhism. This religion still is deeply rooted in the Bhutanese people.

Visible proof of the deep religious devotion of the Bhutanese people are the innumerable picturesque temples and monasteries, Chorten and Mani walls, prayer wheels and prayer flags which decorate the villages and landscape, steep slopes and hill tops. Prayer flags still are erected, often in dangerously steep places, by the pious Bhutanese on advice of their family lamas at many occasions like births, deaths and other important family affairs.
