Description

Another site worth visiting Paro is Drugyel Dzong or The Fortress of the Victorious Bhutanese.

This dzong was constructed by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal in 1646 to commemorate his victory over marauding Tibetan armies. Though the fortress was destroyed by fire in 1951, the ruins remain an impressive and imposing sight.
