Sherdukpen in Bhutan

Sherdukpen in Bhutan

The oral history of the Sherdukpen says that "they originated from the marriage of a Tibetan prince with a princess of Assam, possibly of Kachari origin." Buddhism first came to the Sherdukpen in the mid-1700s, and they have remained loyal to that religion ever since.
