Coronation ceremonies are very important and rate events in the history of a country. The documentation of these events not only records the events themselves; it also serves as a valuable source of reference for any historical researchers and studies. Realising the importance of such records, the Centre for Bhutan Studies looked for materials in order to document the programmes of the coronation ceremony of His Majesty the King, Jigme Singye Wangchuck. While working as an assistant to Dasho Shingkhar Lam, who was then responsible for arranging the traditional aspects of the coronation ceremony, Dungchen Sangay Dorji was able to get hold of some of the materials, which he carefully preserved for the last twenty-five years. From him, the centre obtained records of the proceedings of the Coronation ceremony of 1974. Beside recording the events of the coronation of 1974, the centre are also including in this booklet, the programmes of the Coronation Silver Jubilee celebration of His Majesty the King. This records one of the most important events of Bhutan's contemporary history.
