Revival of Tashi Gomang

This 400-year old tradition is unique to Bhutan alone.

Created by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, the lam manips (singing monks) traveled with the Tashigomang through the valleys and mountains of Bhutan singing spiritual songs to the people.

On the verge of disappearing, it was revived in 2016 through the Tashigomang Project under Her Majesty Royal Grandmother Kesang Choden Wangchuck's Patronage.
