National Library, Thimphu Reviews
Not so good enough. Collection of books is not in large numbers. Surrounding atmosphere and scenic view is however lovely.
A collection of old Archive. The most interesting about it is they have the largest book which was recorded in the Genius Book of World Record.
typical bhutanese building, with wooden floors inside; can see the world's largest book on the ground floor; otherwise just casually roam around, with nothing particular, but see some pictures of Dzongs of Bhutan
The heart of word and wisdom. But people don't visit it as expected. Have to find out why, and must work on how to make it popular among people.
Good library and you can see archives of Bhutan here. One can also witness a man making masks and phallus outside the building.
