Bumthang, Bhutan

Visit the gorgeous Ogyen Choling Palace Museum

For anyone interested in the history and culture of Bhutan, a visit to the Ogyen Choling Palace Museum in Bumthang District could offer a very pleasant day out. About a couple of hours drive outside of the town, the museum is located on a hilltop with a stunning views over the valley. It is originally the former residence of a ruling Bhutanese family descended from a 14th century Buddhist teacher and now parts of their ancestral home has been converted into a museum with a hope to preserve their historical and cultural heritages, promote the development of tourism in the village as well as support the social and economic well-being of the local community. With a lot of displays depicting local items dating back long time ago including farming implements, daily utensils & tools, traditional artworks and artifacts around the place as well as the stunning structures of the house is nearly remained as its originality, the Ogyen Choling Palace Museum delivers an excellent insight into the local lifestyles and living conditions of a typical Bhutanese noble family over the last century. The best viewing time with natural light when the museum becomes the most gorgeous is from 9A.M to 2P.M.
