The most important festival of Bhutan is Tsechu (10th day) which is celebrated in honour of the Indian saint Guru Padmasambhava. This Guru, who is believed to have been born from a lotus flower, has contributed immensely to diffuse the Tantric Buddhism in the country. The major events of the life the Guru is commemorated around the year on the tenth day of the month in different districts.

The festival has religious significance with people believing that by participating in the festival they can attain higher merits. The festival is marked by colourful and vibrant dances that do not just entertain, but also bless the spectator and preach them the Buddhist Dharma. Unfurling of the Thogdrol is the most important event in the entire festival, a simply viewing of which is considered to wipe off all the evils committed.
