HIGHLIGHTED CORE LEARNING:

Buddhism arose in northeastern India sometime between the late 6th century and the early 4th century BCE, a period of great social change and intense religious activity. There is disagreement among scholars about the dates of the Buddha’s birth and death. Many modern scholars believe that the historical Buddha lived from about 563 to about 483 BCE. Many others believe that he lived about 100 years later (from about 448 to 368 BCE). At this time in India, there was much discontent with Brahmanic sacrifice and ritual.

VISION & MISSION:

  • Children will perform better in situations where cultural diversity is a factor
  • Children are actively engaged in a wide range of exciting learning opportunities, where they feel valued, empowered, happy and secure
  • To provide kind, child-led experiences in nature, that support positive transformations in self, place, and culture.

ASSOCIATED PROJECTS

MIDDLE SCHOOL: What about the culture, food and lifestyle has inspired you. What is your view of the Buddhist influence on culture explain with pictures taken at the trip?

HIGH SCHOOL: The culture facilitates us with a holistic view of culture of India “Justify this statement from your personal experience of the trip.

LEARNING OBJECTIVE:

TACHOG LHAKHANG: It is situated between Thimphu and Paro and it was built in the 13th century by Thangthong Gyalpo. He is also known as the Iron bridge builder. Situated on a hill top, we have to cross an ancient style bridge to reach the temple.

DRUKGYEL DZONG: The dzong was probably built by Tenzin Drukdra in 1649 at the behest of Ngawang Namgyal, Zhabdrung Rinpoche, to commemorate victory over an invasion from Tibet. In the early 1950s, Drukgyal Dzong was almost completely destroyed by fire. It is listed as a tentative site in Bhutan's Tentative List for UNESCO inclusion.

TA DZONG: Paro Dzong is it’s ta dzong (watchtower), built in 1649 to protect the undefended dzong and renovated in 1968 to house the National Museum. The unusual round building is said to be in the shape of a conch shell, with 2.5m-thick walls. The ta dzong suffered damage in the 2011 earthquake but is due to reopen in 2016 as the nation's premier museum

TRASHICHHOE DZONG, situated on the banks of Wang Chhu. It is home of the National Assembly and the summer residence of capital's venerated monastic community. The Dzong is the impressive result of a redesign of the original medieval structure sanctioned by the Third King, HM Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, when he moved Bhutan's permanent capital to Thimphu.

BHUTAN'S NATIONAL LIBRARY is located close to the Thangkha painting school and contains arguably the best collection of religious and historic literature in the Himalayas. The Textile and Folk Heritage Museum opened in year 2001 is fascinating testimony of the Bhutanese material culture and living traditions. The Memorial Chhorten, a pious landmark for Thimphu's residents, was erected in 1974 by the mother of Third King, in memory of her son.
