For a tiny country with less than a million people, Bhutan has built a strong identity for itself by zealously protecting its culture, traditions and other age-old values. Bhutanese culture is manifest in dress, language, art and craft, architecture, folk music and performing arts, traditional etiquettes and religious practices. The culture is exhibited through the numerous traditional heritage structures, the festivals and the everyday lifestyle of the people. A unique feature of the kingdom is the way in which the people live in close harmony with nature.
