Title: Flag Lowering Ceremony In Thimphu, Bhutan

Description: It’s a big flag, but someone(s) has to take it down each night.

On the left is the main dznong of Thimphu where the king handles affairs of the country. Also in the dzong is a Buddhist temple and monastery.

In the distance, actually across the Thimphu River, hidden by trees lining its banks, is the royal residence.
