Samlha Tours & Travels

Folk Heritage

The Museum was established in 2001 to provide insight into the people’s culture and way of life. It is situated in the Kawajangsa area which is just a 5-minute drive from the main town.

The Folk Heritage Museum is a fantastic resource for individuals interested in learning about Bhutan’s rich history, traditions, and authentic Bhutanese rustic life. From the traditional home to the fields of wheat, paddy, and millet, the rural scenery is beautifully recreated within. The presence of a water mill that is more than 150 years old, a traditional style kitchen with vegetables cultivated over the past 100 years, and traditional hot stone baths all contribute to the rural landscape’s authenticity. One visit is insufficient to fully comprehend its beauty and the distinctive experience it offers.
