Thimphu Annual Tsechu (September/October)


One of the biggest festivals in Bhutan is the Thimphu Tshechu, held in the capital city over 3 consecutive days in September/October, corresponding to the eighth lunar month in the Bhutanese calendar. It was first initiated by the 4th Desi, Gyalse Tenzin Rabgay in 1867.
 
Thimphu tshechu introduces numerous Boed chhams (mask dances performed by lay monks). Mask dances like the Guru Tshengye (eight manifestations of Guru), Shaw shachi (dance of the stags) are enjoyed because they are like stage theatre.
 
Atsaras (clowns) are a common sight at the tsechus. The Atsaras perform comic routines, mimic the dancers, joke around, and even harass the audience for money in return for a blessing with the wooden phallus they carry around. However, the dances and the jesting of the Atsaras are believed to entrance evil forces and prevent them from causing harm during tshechus.
