Why Travel Bhutan With Truly Bhutan

Trashigang Dzong

Trashigang Dzong Is situated on a high projection overlooking the confluence of the Drangme Chhu and the Gamri Chhu, was built in 1668 by Chogyal Minjur Tempa, the third Deb of Bhutan. This Dzong served as the center of governance for the entire eastern region from the late 17th century until the beginning of the 20th century. It also houses the office of the Dzongda (District Commissioner) and the home of the monk body.

Unlike the other Dzongs, it has only one courtyard and the Trashigang Dzong is amazingly located on a wonderful landscape that is accessible only from the north.
