In celebration of the 108th National Day this 17 December, we are proud to present this special video recounting the Extraordinary Journey of Bhutan, united by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel, and guided by a succession of Dharma Kings.
This year, we honoured the Father of our Nation, His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo, under whose reign Bhutan achieved phenomenal success, with the celebration of His Majesty’s 60th Birth Anniversary.
The celebration brought the people of Bhutan an additional cause for celebration, when His Majesty announced that the Heir to the Golden Throne would be born next year.
It is therefore a special National Day we mark this year, united as a nation and looking forward with ambition and hope. We take the opportunity to pay tribute to our Kings, who embody Bhutan’s greatest characters of strength, compassion, and unity.
The stunning artwork for this video has been done by Chimi R Namgyel
