Trashi Chhoe Dzong

Trashi Chhoe Dzong is both a Buddhist monastery and a fortress structure that serves for political, religious and legal functions. It is also the present Bhutanese king's working office and the location where the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Finance positions are assigned. Trashi Chhoe Dzong was first built in the 13th century by Phajo Dugon Shipgo, the father of the Bhutan sect of Tibetan Buddhism, on the west bank of the Wang Chhu River at an altitude of 2500 meters. This fortress is a square stone structure with 7 stories, each story ranging from 4.5-6 meters high, while the monastery is a two-storied tower. The outer wall is whitewashed and there are four golden roof towers at each corner of the Dzong which are built higher than the main building. the third king of Bhutan, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, embarked on a five-year construction, repairing and enlarging the complex. The King's throne and office are still kept in the monastery, which is also the place where the royal family deals with family and business issues.
