Tashi Delek Courtyard


The golden statue of Buddha watches peacefully over this courtyard. The courtyard has a range of traditional artifacts on display. Some still use today but many are extinct.



The Pachhab Studio is a replica of a traditional Bhutanese house being made. The walls are pounded by people, usually women while they sing the age old "Om Sala Mani" (a song with a prayer for all sentient beings especially for those that live in the soil that is being used to build the house). (In Buddhism, killing any sentient beings even without the intention is generating a bad karma for oneself.)



Just as you decide to leave Simply Bhutan, you have an opportunity to make a wish and a prayer and toss a coin into the copper pot that floats on the pond in front of the Buddha.
