Ura Yakchoe

This annual festival held in Ura in Bumthang is known for its famous dance called the “Ura

Yakchoe”. A sacred relic is displayed for people to receive blessing from. According to legend, an

old woman sitting outside her house was visited by a lama asking for a glass of water. When she

came out with the water, the lama had vanished leaving behind only a sack. Out of curiosity, she

checked the bag and found the statue that is

now displayed annually. This relic has been passed on from generation to generation and is still

owned by the descendants of the woman.
