The Ministry of Home and Cultural Affairs has announced important changes in the list of public holidays in Bhutan, effective immediately.

Three, one-day public holidays have been removed: Thrue (Blessed Rainy Day), Ngenpa Guzom (Meeting of the Nine Evils), and the anniversary of the death of the third Druk Gyalpo, His Majesty the late King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck.

To compensate these cancellations, and following his recent accession to the throne (17-Dec-2006), the birthday of His Majesty the Fifth Druk Gyalpo, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, on February 21, has been made into a new annual public holiday, lasting 3 days.
