Thankas or Religious Scrolls are very popular in Bhutan. We have many festivals in Bhutan in honor of Guru Pasmasambhava popularly known as Guru Rimpoche and in all these festivals ancient Thankas are displayed for its blessings.
In Bhutan have Thankas in paintings and hand stitched. The Royal Government of Bhutan also has an Institute to teach Thanka Paintings and embroidery. Thus Thankas have been revived and has now become a part of a Bhutanese earning where some have very good skills in making the Thankas and they make a livelihood out of this skill.
