You probably will have already driven a long way to get to this town, so this Dzong is defnitely worth a visit. A beauitful Dzong, quite a bit different from the others, so do go in.

One of the biggest dzongs in Bhutan. The location of the dzong itself is breath taking.The first and the second kings ruled the country from here. The Dzong is huge in size,the designs, cravings, architectures are just beyond words. One should really visit this dzong.
