Tashi Choe Dzong and Gouvernment building complex of Bhutan
The "fortress of the glorious religion", was initially built in 1641 by Zhabdrung Nawang Namgyal. The present structure was rebuilt in 1965 by the third King, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, when he chose Thimphu as his permanent capital. It houses the government and the central clergy of monks. It is open to the visitors during festivals, on weekends, and after office hours.
Its also the home of His Royal Highness Jigme Singye Wangchuck.
