Punakha Dzong

The Punakha Dzong was built back in 1637 and has served as an enduring symbol of a united Bhutan since. Dzongs are distinctive forts that have served as administrative centres in Bhutanese districts for centuries. The Punakha Dzong is the largest dzong in Bhutan and one of the most regal places to visit in Punakha. The beautiful complex is the epitome of architecture in Bhutan, and its beautifully decorated rooms and prayer halls are a treat for visitors that come here.
