Wanduephodrang Dzong :

The Wangdue Phodrang Dzong, containing some of the most sacred relics, was gutted in 2012 & reconstruction is underway. Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel constructed the fortress in 1643 overlooking the confluence of the Dangchhu and Punatsangchhu rivers.

Wangduephodrang dzong also serves as an important administrative center, connecting the eastern and western regions of Bhutan. A devastating fire destroyed the Dzong on 24th June 2012. Upon the Royal Command of His Majesty the King, the historic Dzong was rebuilt to its former glory. The new Dzong was consecrated on 11th November 2022.

The fortress had three doorways, three courtyards, and 14 temples.
