Punakha Drubchen is celebrated to honour the victory by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel over the invading Tibetan forces which then lead to the unification of the country as one nation.

Punakha Tshechu/Festival is held right after the Punakha Drubchen with unfurling of Thongdrel ( a large tapestry ) of Guru Rinpoche.

It is believed that by attending a festival like this can cleanse sins and gain merits.
