well...it was mightly big and so beautiful both in the day and by the nightlights. Must visit for all.
Thimbu is very peaceful city. It is safe and well management city. People of this city very friendly helpful. The cinerary of this city from the Budha stupa is unbleavle. When you visit monastery, you will feel peace happiness.
This is a very large and very striking dzong both from the outside and inside. The architecture is amazing particularly when you consider it is not built to a strict plan but, apparently, the builder makes his best efforts (this is why the beams along the edge are not absolutely straight - same for all dzongs I am told). Anyway,... More
What a wonderful place they have!!! I really salute Bhutan architecture. It's a vey big dzong. Since it has both government office and monastry, one has to cross checking as they do in airport. I really admired this Dzong. The paintings and architecture is just awesome!!! You can see the parliament opposite to the Dzong. You can also have a... More
A beautiful and imposing Dzong in Thimphu which is also the King's office for 3 days of the week. Visitors are not allowed to see his office, of course, but can go into the temple part of the dzong where he presides along with the monastic head during main religious ceremonies. Definitely worth a visit!
Must visit. The Dzong is used as the office of King , residences of Monk, The Monastery and several other offices. The whole area is beautifully kept, the pictures on the walls are well maintained and breathtaking, the monastery is serene. One can see the residence of the king, just a short distance away. Lovely place to visit

The view from afar consists of the government building, the parliament house building and also the King's residence. What surprised me was the size of the King's residence. I would say a rich man in my country will own a bigger house than this. Such a humble King.
This dzong houses the current government buildings and is a bustling place which is why visiting hours are limited. However, if you go as soon as possible (maybe a little early) you may get to see the flag lowering ceremony. Also the dzong is lit up at night and the view from above is breathtaking.
