Punakha Dzong

Swetha Kumar
The most beautiful river side palace from the 17th century.
♦♦♦Punakha Dzong: Built strategically at the junction of Pho Chu and Mo Chu rivers in 1637 to serve as the religious and administrative centre of the region, Punakha Dzong has played an important role in Bhutan’s history. Damaged by four catastrophic fires and an earthquake, the Dzong has been fully restored by the present King. Open for visitors during Punakha festival and in summer months when the monk body moves to Thimphu. This Dzong is also the seat of all royal crowning functions. We had timed our visit perfectly for spring season for gorgeous views of the lilac-coloured jacaranda trees that grow around the Punakha Dzong.(300 Ngultrum- Entry ticket)
