Daga Tashi Yangtze Dzong

Daga Trashi Yangtse Dzong is one of the oldest Dzongs in the country. Built in 1951, the Dzong stands on a ridge overlooking a valley. Among other sacred relics, the Dzong houses a buffalo horn measuring about 4’5”. The horn is believed to have been discovered by Daga Penlop Tempa Thinley in early 16th century. 

Drugda Namgyel built Daga Trashi Yangtse Dzong with a command from Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel to bring the area under control and to defend the country from the invading armies from south. Like many other Dzongs in the country, Daga Trashi Yangtse Dzong too provides shelter to more than two hundred monks
