For centuries, prayer flags have been a major part of Bhutanese people's tradition, symbolising the reality and pervasiveness of their belief.

Prayer Flag Hoisting



Prayer flags are hoisted for happiness, long life, prosperity, luck and merit and to offer karmic merit to all sentient beings. Prayer flags are raised outside homes, hung on hilltops, bridges and places of spiritual importance. Hoisting a prayer flag is considered to bring in good luck and merit to all sentient beings. Gangtey Lodge has an area behind the local Shedra where the ceremony is performed.
