This day began with us visiting Rinpung Dzong. This houses the district monastic body and the administrative offices of Paro. It was so quiet we wondered whether we had come on a holiday,to which our guide laughed and said "no no see its crowded outside the courtroom". We turned around to see exactly 2 people standing outside the court.
Fun fact : Population of Bhutan 8 lakhs
Population of Bangalore 1.23 crores.
We got a chance to enter the small monastery within the Dzong during a prayer session which was an experience I will never forget. I never knew chants in a different language that I don't even understand could make one feel so spiritual.
We then took a walk across the Nyamai Zam, a wooden bridge rebuilt after being washed away by a flood in 1969 that is built across Paro Chu.
We then visited the museum , that was coincidentally celebrating 50 years of friendship between India and Bhutan! There was a strict no camera policy in the museum,but it mainly consisted of displays of the different masks,and how each mask expressed a different vice, that we humans must strive to get rid of.
