A fascinating structure in between a river and hill. Great location. One can spend hrs admiring the beauty of this sprawling structure and the surroundings.Great wood work and paintings. Never felt like leaving the place.

One of the reason to visit Paro is this ancient Dzong that has great architecture vistas dating few centuries ago .
From tall buildings with huge windows made of wood intricately carved with Bhutanese motifs and lamas walking around give this place that vintage feel .
Wall paintings and prayer temples , photography not allowed , are jaw dropping .
Spend some time walking and observing little lamas .

The intricate wood work, and the large beams held together without nails are worth seeing. Its construction began in 1644; it's, thus, a delight to see how well preserved it is.
It serves as a residence for the monastic body, district government offices and local judicial court. Its location on the banks of the river make for idyllic backdrop. Just across the road is a small shop where you can dress in a gho/ kira & get yourself clicked with the dzong in the background.

Paro Dzong is one of “must-to-see” attractions in Bhutan, which guides you back by several centuries. Tip: if you wish to buy some cordyceps, do it there from the farmers directly because the price in Paro is 2,5 Times higher.

This dzong was very interesting. The architecture was beautiful. Also learning about how local people need to dress to visit was quiet interesting.
