Trongsa Dzong2
Kuenga Rabten Palace
Ta Dzong Tower

Trongsa is in the center of Bhutan and four hours by road from Wangduephodrang. The Trongsa Dzong is a labyrinth of temples, corridors and office holding court over the local community. Perched on the rim of the valley, it can be seen from every approach.

The Royal family has strong links with Trongsa. Both His Majesty the King Ugyen Wangchuck, the Penlop of Trongsa and his successor, King Jigme Wangchuck, ruled the country from Trongsaís ancient Dzong.

The Crown Prince of Bhutan has always held the position of the Trongsa Penlop prior to ascending the throne. The present King continued this tradition as he was appointed Trongsa Penlop in 1972 shortly before he ascended the throne of Bhutan.
