Her Majesty The Gyalt­suen in­au­gu­rated the 3rd Royal Bhutan Flower Ex­hi­bi­tion on June 4th at the Na­tional Me­mo­rial Chorten.

Her Im­pe­rial High­ness Princess Mako of Ja­pan was a spe­cial guest at the event.

The Flower Ex­hi­bi­tion which is be­ing held at the Na­tional Me­mo­rial Chorten in Thim­phu this year is ded­i­cated to His Majesty the Third King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is or­ga­nized by the min­istry of agri­cul­ture. Pri­vate nurs­eries and var­i­ous agen­cies par­tic­i­pated in the ex­hi­bi­tion along with in­ter­na­tional par­tic­i­pants from In­dia, Thai­land, and Ja­pan, to set up mi­cro gar­dens for the ex­hi­bi­tion. Of­fi­cials from the agri­cul­ture min­istry and other agen­cies have been work­ing at the Me­mo­rial Chorten for weeks in prepa­ra­tion for the ex­hi­bi­tion, along with the sup­port of vol­un­teers. At the same time, nu­mer­ous gov­ern­ment agen­cies and pri­vate of­fices have taken up the re­spon- sibil­ity of de­vel­op­ing mi­cro gar­dens around their own of­fices and sur­round­ings across Thim­phu, in the spirit of the ob­jec­tives of the Royal Bhutan Flower Ex­hi­bi­tion.

The ex­hi­bi­tion was open to the pub­lic from 5th June on­wards. The ex­hi­bi­tion re­mained open till 8 pm each day. The 3rd Royal Flower Ex­hi­bi­tion will end to­day.
