In Bhutan eight lucky signs are considered auspicious. We find them everywhere and we wouldn't be surprised if some of them find their place in public defecation centers. And believed to have been offered by the Gods to the Gautama Buddha after he attained his enlightenment, these eight symbols represent good fortune.
If you visit Phuentsholing, don’t forget to pay homage to these eight lucky signs displayed along the wall that divides Phuentsholing from Jaigaon. Dantak people have taken good
initiatives of painting them, but today they stare us from the specks of mosses and accumulated dust. There are too too many even to notice.
