History
History S traddling the eastern Himalayas the kingdom Bhutan, measuring 39393 sq kilometers, is a landlocked nation bordered by China to the North and India to the South. Bhutan’s early history is obscure. Stone implements suggest that it may have been inhabited as early as 2000 B.C. not much is known, prior to the advent of Buddhism in the 8th century by the Indian saint, Guru Padmasambhava, The consolidation of Bhutan occurred in 1616 with the coming of Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, a lama from Ralung, Tibet. He codified an intricate and comprehensive system of law, and established himself as ruler (Shabdrung) over a system of ecclesiastical and civil administrators. After his death, the country fell into a prolonged period of civil strife for the next 200 years. Indian 1885 Ugyen Wangchuk was able to consolidate power and cultivate closer ties with the British in India. On December 17, 1907, Gonsar Ugyen Wangchuk was elected as the hereditary ruler of Bhutan and installed as the head of state Druk Gyalpo (Dragon King) that begun an era of peace and stability. In 1910, Bhutan the British signed the Treaty of Punakha which provided that British India would not interfere in the internal affairs of Bhutan. His son King Jigme Wangchuk became the next ruler, and when India gained independence in 1947, the new Indian government recognized Bhutan as an independent country. In 1949, India and Bhutan signed the Treaty of Peace and Friendship. Succeeded in 1952 by his son King Jigme Dorji Wangchuk, Bhutan began to slowly emerge from its isolation and began a program of planned development with assistance from the government of India. Bhutan became a member of the United Nations in 1971, and during his tenure the National Assembly was established and a new code of law, as well as the Royal Bhutanese Army and the High Court. King Jigme Singye Wanghuk ascended the throne at age 16 after the untimely demise of his father in 1972. Building on what his father had started, he emphasized modern education, decentralization of governance, development of hydroelectricity and tourism based on the philosophy of “Gross National Happiness.” King Jimgme Singye Wangchuk also initiated the democratization process. The drafting of constitution started in November 2001 and in December 2006, the fourth King abdicated in favour of his eldest son, Jigme Khesar namgyel Wangchuk who became the fifth Druk Gyalpo. In February 2007, Bhutan and India updated and ratified the Bhutan India Friendship Treaty to keep with the needs of the changing times and forge stronger links in economic cooperation.
