Bhutan History

Bhutan"" may be derived from the Sanskrit word Bhu-Utthan. In another theory of Sanskritisation, Bhoa-anta means ""At the End of Tibet"

as Bhutan is immediately to Tibet's south."""

Historically Bhutan was known by many names, such as Lho Mon, Lho Tsendenjong, Lhomen Khazhi and Lho Men Jong.

Stone tools, weapons, elephants, and remnants of large stone structures provide evidence that Bhutan was inhabited as early as 2000 BC, although there are no existing records from that time. Historians have theorized that the state of Lhomon, or Monyul may have existed between 500 BC and AD 600. The names Lhomon Tsendenjong, and Lhomon Khashi, or Southern Mon, have been found in ancient Bhutanese and Tibetan chronicles."
