Buddhism is very important part of Bhutanese life and there are lot of temples and prayer flags around. First stepping out from the airport and meeting my guide and driver, I saw a small plastic prayer wheel by our car’s windscreen. By rotating it was sending automatic prayers to make the trip safer.
There were also hydropower prayer wheels and of course wind-powered prayer flags.
Then there were prayer wheels that old people didn’t have energy to turn, but instead visitors would be turning wheels on their behalf.
During every visit to temples people were turning small wheels. In some places there were 108 of them which is significant number in buddhism.
There were also big prayer wheels by temples, hotels etc.
