Mongar

Mongar Dzong

Although built in the 1930s and one of Bhutan’s newest Dzong, it is constructed in the same way as all earlier Dzongs, without plans or nails.  However unlike the earlier Dzongs, that are located in strategic positions, Mongar Dzong is located on a small gentle sloppy area just above the town. A visit to Mongar Dzong shows one how traditional Bhutanese architecture has continued to thrive through the centuries.
