Rare old photos of Bhutan

In my blog on 9 November last year there were two pictures of Tibet taken more than half a century ago. Below are a couple of rare photos of Bhutan, also taken over half a century ago, which have been on display at a recent exhibition in Delhi, India.

The first one is a photo of Rinpung monastery in Paro taken in 1864.

The second one shows the king and queen of Bhutan looking out towards the Taj Mahal from Agra Fort during their state visit to India in 1954.

The third one shows students and teachers at a school in Paro.

Lovely glimpses into the past.
