Spirituality and religion are omnipresent in Bhutan and I have gathered here some photos of the more obvious and visible sides of it.

Actually you can see signs of spirituality all over the country: on mountaintops, in forests, houses, even in cars... but more important you can experience it in the relationship of the people with their natural surrounding; this is one of the biggest differences between Bhutan and the so called "developped" countries: spirituality in Bhutan is something that is still very much part of the daily life and of what people do and the way how they do it.

In almost every house and apartment you will find at least a little altar (and many do have a whole altar room); and on many mountain tops you will find a monastery or a temple.
