Tour of the Lhakhang Cultural Exhibit

Wednesday, April 8, 2020, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

A gift from the Bhutanese people to the people of the United States, the Lhakhang, or Buddhist temple, was first showcased at the 2008 Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C. After the festival, the structure was deconstructed and sent to El Paso, where it was later permanently rebuilt as a cultural exhibit at the heart of the UTEP campus with the help of 12 young Bhutanese artisans. Nearly all of the buildings on the UTEP campus incorporate Bhutanese architectural elements--massive sloping walls, high inset windows, overhanging roofs, and darks bands of brick inset with mosaic-tiled mandalas.
