Next day morning we started with the Memorial Chorten: The stupa built in the memory of Bhutan's third King, His Late Majesty, King Jigme Dorji Wangchuk, who is popularly regarded as Father of modern Bhutan.The Royal family was having a function there, but we and all other tourists and even localities were allowed in there. No high level security, no stampede, no caravan of cars outside - it was as peaceful as a stupa could be.The vehicles there that belong to the Royal family have BHUTAN written on their number plates. Just BHUTAN....what pride!
