Bhutan travel guide-Thimphu : Tashichho dzhong

Tashichho dzhong

The Tashichho Dzhong is a Buddhist monastery cum fortress at the northern edge of Thimpu the capital city of Bhutan. The Dzhong was built on the western bank of the river Wang Chu, and has historically served at the seat of the DrukDesi or the Dharma Raja of Bhutan’s government. After the kings assumed power in 1907 this post was combined with that of the king and Thimphu severed as the summer caital of the kingdom before becoming the full time capital of Bhutan.

The original Thimphu Dzhong (the Dho-Ngyen Dzhong) is said to have been constructed in 1216 by Lama GyalwaLhanangpa. And was later taken over by Lama PhajoDrukgomShigpo before the Dzhong was conquered by ShabdrungNgawangNamgyal, who found the Dzhong to be too small and expanded it to what is now known as theTashichhodzong is also called the "fortress of glorious religion." It was erected in 1641 and was subsequently rebuilt by King JigmeDorjiWangchuck in the 1960s.

The Dzhong has been seat of the Royal government since 1952 and presently houses the Throne room and the Kings secretariat. TheTashichhodzong is also home to several ministries of the Bhutanese government, and the Central Monk Body which is the apex organization of the country's main spiritual order. The monument welcomes visitors during the Thimphu Tsechu festival which is held in autumn each year.

The Dzongs main structure is a two stpried quadrangle with 3 storied towers on each of the its four corners.
