While in Punakha, visit Punakha Dzong built in 1637 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. For many years, it served as the seat of the Government till the time of the second king. There is a smaller building near the main structure called Dzong Chu (Small Dzong) that housed the statue of Buddha. It is said that Zhabdrung took Palep (the Architect) to zangtopelri (heaven) while sleeping and showed him the palace of Guru Rinpoche. From this vision, the architect conceived the design for the new Dzong but the design was never committed on paper. The war materials captured during the battle with the Tibetans are preserved here.

This incredible structure clings to the edge of a sheer rock cliff that plunges 900 meters into the valley below. Legend has it that Guru Padmasambhava, the tantric mystic who brought Buddhism to Bhutan in 747 AD, flew here on the back of a flying tiger, Dorji Drolo, said to be his favourite consort.
