Festival Ground, Paro Overview

The festival ground outside Paro Dzong is the site of the Paro Tshechu, the most colourful festival of Paro. Held here every year, it is on this sacred ground that the monks perform different kinds of masked dances and re-enact scenes from the past.

Due to its heavy cultural significance, the stone-paved festival ground is very well maintained. It is more than 18 square metres in area. The ground looks the loveliest on the last day of Tshechu when the thangka of Guru Rinpoche is unfolded.

The Festival Grounds of Paro, situated by the Paro Dzong, is as old as the colourful and vibrant Paro Tshechu. The Festival Grounds have risen to significance since the 17th century, where Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel and Ponpo Rigzin Nyingpo started the tradition of Paro Tshechu, combining it with the blessing of the Paro Dzong.
