The Memorial Chorten in Thimpu was built in 1974. The Memorial Chorten is dedicated to Bhutan's third king,His Majesty Jigme Dorji Wangchuck (the father of modern Bhutan ) Bhutan is a dream travel destination for me. I was enthralled with the beauty of nature ,hospitality of the people,discipline in city life in Bhutan.This painting is the result of my digging the past memory of my Bhutan tour. I made an initial sketch from a photo I had snapped near this Memorial. I had visited Bhutan before 2000. A major renovation was made to this memorial in the year 2008.
