Located on the city's northern edge near the Wangchhu River, Tashichho Dzong (Thimpu Dzong) has served as the seat of Bhutan's civil government and the summer capital since the inception of its monarchy. First constructed in 1216, the dzong has experienced constant changes, renovations, and enlargements throughout its history, combining religious and governmental facilities into one. Towers punctuate the fortress-like structure, while the manicured gardens and lawns complement the impressive building. Wear proper clothing during your visit or you may be asked to leave.
