Religious Artifact

Bhutanese temple establishments and housholds possess a wide range religious objects. Some of these objects symbolize religious principles and some are special vessels for making offerings while others are musical instruments played during religious rituals. These objects are passed down as temple or family properties. The Bhutanese clerics also have a naunced culture of the usage of these religious instruments which are learnt through formal training and apprenticeship. The use of religious musical instruments is still vibrant across the country.
