Bhutan on the Border

Set against a rugged mountainside, the buildings of The University of Texas at El Paso reflect the image of some ancient and mysterious kingdom.

And indeed, our architectural history was inspired by the Kingdom of Bhutan. Our connection to that Himalayan country nearly 10,000 miles and 12 time zones away is strengthened through our appreciation of its culture and traditions.

This summer, UTEP is proud to have hosted Bhutan Festival 2008 in celebration of architectural history and cultural connections.
