 Things to do

City Highlights of Trongsa

Visit Trongsa Dzong, an impenetrable fortress and labyrinth of temples built in 1648. Discover Ta Dzong, a cylindrical stone structure and five storey watchtower in 1652 by Chogyal Minjur Tempa. After over 350 years, Ta Dzong was resurrected into a living museum representing a tasteful blend of tradition and modernity and where reside hermits, including two yogis who are in life-long meditation. A tranquil retreat, the main lhakhang in the Utse is dedicated to the Maitreya Buddha (Gyaltsab Jampa), also known as the Future Buddha. Shop for textiles from hand-dyed wool and traditional machine woven carpets.
