The spectacular Punakha Dzong is one of the most beautiful Dzongs in Bhutan.

The Punakha Dzong was known in ancient times as the Druk Pungthang Dechhen Phrodang or 鍍he palace of great happiness. It is the second dzong to be built in Bhutan and was the seat of government when Punakha was the capital of Bhutan. Today, the dzong is the winter home for the clergy.

The dzong壮 central tower, the utse, is six storeys high. The history of Punakha Dzong is characterised by damage from numerous fires, floods and earthquakes.
