about thimpu dzong/tashichho dzong

Among the most prominent landmarks in Thimphu is counted the Thimpu Dzong or Tashichho Dzong, which means Fortress of the Glorious Religion. Located on the west bank of the Wang Chuu, it is widely admired for its mind-blowing architecture. Though the imposing white-washed structure has undergone several renovations over the centuries but it is still an architectural marvel. It serves as the seat of the government since 1952 and currently houses the throne room and offices of the king, the secretariat and the ministries of home affairs and finance. Other government departments are housed in buildings nearby. On a visit to this structure, don't forget to wear something that cover your legs and something with collar on the top else you won't be allowed to enter.
