There are hundreds of spiritual monuments which is related with Buddhism including monasteries, dzong, spiritual center and cultural centers.

The Bhutanese have treasured their natural environment as it is seen as a source of all life and the abode of the Gods and spirits. Buddhism has been the predominant religion since the 7th century and has inculcated deeply the value that all forms of sentient life, not just human life, are precious and sacred. Given such a prevailing ethos which respects the natural environment. it is not surprising that the Bhutanese have lived in harmony with nature and that the nation has its environment still pristine and intact today the country has been identified as one of the 10 bio-diversity hot spots in the world and as one of the 221 global endemic bird areas.
