Bhutan’s proximity to Tibet and the existence of ancient route between India and Tibet through Bhutan may have encouraged many Buddhist saints from Tibet to travel through modern day Bhutan spreading Buddhism. Historical accounts however like to narrate that many of those visits were prophesied and the great saints obliged to fulfill their calling. Buddhism spread across the valley and its foundation was reinforced with the construction of many Buddhist temples and monasteries. The practice of Buddhism gave birth to social behaviors that were passed on for generations which consequently evolved into a culture. Hence Bhutanese culture and Buddhism can be perceived as intertwined and is greatly revered by locals.
