Prakhar Duchhoed Festival

Nov 4, 2017

Prakar Lhakhang, Chummi, BUMTHANG

The festival is held at the Prakhar Goemba, in the Chumi Valley of Bumthang, which is about half an hour drive from Chamkhar town. Prakhar Goemba is main temple of the village. It is about 10 minutes walk from the road and was built around the 16th century. It is said that Langurs helped build this Lhakhang, humans would build it during the day and the monkeys would continue the work at night, hence the name ‘Prakhar’, which means ‘White Monkey’.
The festival lasts for 3 days from the 16th to the 18th of the ninth lunar month in the Bhutanese calendar
