Ms. Kunzang Choden, a Bhutanese princess paid a visit to the ICC
On May 7, 2012, Ms. Kunzang Choden, a Bhutanese princess and writer, paid a visit to the International Cultural Centre. Ten years ago she initiated a project of revitalisation of Ogyen Choling – an estate in the Himalayas, consisting of a palace and a temple, which has belonged to the family of Ms. Choden for centuries. Today, it remains one of the most important heritage sites of Bhutan boasting a considerable religious, cultural and artistic value. The renovation project of Ogyen Czoling has not yet been completed. The visit to the ICC made it possible for Ms. Kunzang Choden to learn more about the European experiences in the field of renovation and managements of heritage sites.

Princess Kunzang Choden (born in 1952) graduated in psychology (Indraprastha College in Delhi) and sociology (University of Nebraska-Lincoln). She is the first Bhutanese woman to publish a novel in English. She is also the author of stories and folk tales of Bhutan. She worked for the United Nations Development Program in Bhutan. She currently lives in Thimphu, the capital city of Bhutan.
