Description

The Mist clad and blessed with the most verdant greenery, Bhutan is a slice of heaven on Earth. One of the last standing authentic Himalayan kingdoms, it has something to offer to all its guests. From culture vultures to adrenaline junkies, Bhutan has something for everyone. However, its most precious offerings are in the form of its rich, intricate age-old traditions that have been carefully preserved to date. And no structure symbolizes this heritage better than the one placed at the very entrance of Bhutan- the Bhutan gate.

Located at the Indo-Bhutan border town of Phuentsholing, the Bhutan gate welcomes all visitors with arms wide open. It is a magnificent specimen of Bhutanese architecture. There is an alpine type of vegetation in Bhutan with the forest containing many species of trees such as oak, rhododendron, cypress, juniper, pine, and for. Thus, timber is available in plentiful. This is why wood is a common construction material used in all most all types of Bhutanese architecture - from humble cottages to royal palaces. This has been perfectly reflected in the construction of the gate as well. Immense wooden pillars rise with palms spread out to the sky as if in prayer while idols and natural motifs play out their intricate dance throughout the structure. You'll easily see it if you're coming by road. Even if you're not, then taking some time out to visit this magnificent structure is definitely worth it. The gate is open from  9:00 AM to 10:00 PM. It takes almost 2 to 3 hours to soak in the beauty of this structure in its entirety.
