The conservation and restoration of Bhutan and the Himalaya’s tangible heritage

There are over 2275 monasteries in the Kingdom of Bhutan with over 500,000 artefacts that are in dire need of preservation.

Our monk conservators have, as of 2019, restored over 200 artifacts and over 10 monasteries(in collaboration with Department of Culture, MoHCA) since 2013.

 

This includes the conservation of 35 Tashigomangs (portable miniature altars unique to Bhutan) and a one-of-a-kind 11 Guru Padmasambhava thangka set amongst others.

Royal Dumtseg Project

The Royal Dumtseg Project is under the patronage of Her Majesty Royal Grandmother Kesang Choeden Wangchuck.

 

Dumtseg Monastery is the only stupa monastery of its kind in the Kingdom of Bhutan.

It is a national heritage site that is closely associated with the history and local community of Jangsa village, Paro. 

Due to its importance, BACCC is dedicated to renovating the site without compromising its historic integrity.
