Bhutan Trongsa Dzong

Trongsa Dzong in Bhutan

The Trongsa Dzong is an ancient Fortress located in Central Bhutan and has been the seat of the Royal Family Governors where the Crown Prince before being enthroned as King of Bhutan, has to acquire the Title of Trongsa Penlop or Trongsa Governor.  This has been the ancient practice since the Wangchuck Dynasty of the Kings have ruled Bhutan.

Trongsa Dzong is strategically located on a Spur overlooking the Mangde Chhu river. It is also the longest Dzong in Bhutan. It was built in this location so that it had a clear view of any suspicious activities if any.

Even now the Trongsa Dzong serves as an Administrative governing office and houses the monastic body. This Fortress houses the temples of Chenrezig Lhakhang and Maitreya (Jambayang).
