Paro Things to Do: 15 reviews and 41 photos
I couldn’t find out which word is the most proper one to describe them. So, I am still using “male organ” or phallus to mention them. In Bhutan, houses are generally decorated with many different pictures from Buddhist culture. Also they use male organs with ribbons as a decorative picture at the entrance of a house. It is very common in a certain part of Paro. We saw many examples on our way to Drukyel Dzong. We even stopped by a house to see them in the middle of nowhere.
Their origin is the Divine Madman, Drukpa Kunley. This distinguished character has a powerful effect and many stories in Bhutan.
