Archery Ground, Paro Overview

The Archery Grounds in Paro hold traditional archery games occasionally. As archery is the national sport of Bhutan, the archers take great pride in the sport. It is quite captivating to see these skilled sportsmen on the archery ground stand at a distance of more than 100 metres and shoot the bird's eye flawlessly.

The ground is well maintained and traditional Bhutanese bows and arrows are used by archers. It is mostly visited after taking a round of Paro’s weekend market or Druk Choeding Temple. The sight of people hitting dead centre from a large distance is thrilling.
