The Paro Dzong from northern side

The Paro Dzong from northern side
The Paro Dzong, also called Rinpung Dzong, was started in 1644 on the order of Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, the unifier of modern day Bhutan. Unlike most of the other dzongs in Bhutan, it survived the massive 1897 earthquake mostly unscathed, though it was damaged by fire in 1907.
