Bhutan’s Cultural Heritage is the legacy of physical artefacts and intangible attributes of the Bhutanese society. In order to preserve, conserve, safeguard and promote the important legacies of Bhutan that are inherited from past generations, maintained in the present and to bestow for the benefit of future generations, the Research and Media Division under National Library & Archives of Bhutan (NLAB) will undertake research and documentation of tangible and intangible cultural heritages of Bhutan.

The researched and documented heritages will be made online in various forms such as document, image, video and audio formats for all the internet users. The internet users will not only find the cultural element and its description but will also find the location details of the element including village, gewog, and dzongkhag. Furthermore, the users will have access to the researched information on the extinct culture as well.

The above online information will not only help the staff of the NLAB and the Department of Culture  maintain the records of the cultures in Bhutan but will certainly help national and international anthropologists/researchers to find information on the specific cultures of Bhutan without much difficulty. Besides, this online database will provide a platform for fellow citizens to learn and understand their culture better. In this web-based database, the researched data are categorized under 7 domains and it will be further divided into categories, genres and elements based on the uniqueness and characteristics of the Bhutanese culture. The internet users can search for elements based on Dzongkhag, Gewog, Domain, or simply by typing the element name or keyword(s) in the textbox of Basic Search.

Enjoy exploring cultural diversity of Bhutan.
