Photographer's Note

Yet another one of Bhutan's impressive dzongs. This one is located in Wangdue Phodrang, a small town in western Bhutan along the highway towards the east. This dzong was founded in 1638 and a location was selected on a high ridge between the Punak and the Dang rivers. Like all dzongs it's a combination of monastery and district administration, originally also intended as a fortress.
