Bhutan is a country rich in ethnic, cultural, and religious traditions, having moved towards modernization only in the latter half of the 20th century. While some initiatives have been undertaken to understand the history of the land and its people, there is so much that is yet to be discovered. It is this fascination for Bhutan and its people that drove the author to pen The Unexplored Kingdom: People and Folk Cultures of Bhutan. The book reveals the diverse facets of the Land of the Thunder Dragon, exploring its historical background, ethnic lifestyles, and cultural and religious practices.
