Now in ruins, Drukgyel Dzong is a fortress which was built in 1649 to mark the victory of Bhutan over Tibet. If you want to see the fascinating stone work of the Dzongs of the past, then this is the place to go to. On climbing to the top of the ruins, an amazing view of the valley greets you, making it worth the effort.
Located in the upper part of Paro district, the fire that broke open in 1951 engulfed the Drukgyel Dzong in flames and left it in the current situation. The efforts have been started by the government to reconstruct it and bring it back to life and glory which it deserves. Despite its ruined state, its grandeur has not diminished even a bit. Perhaps that is why it is a UNESCO structure and attracts thousands of eyeballs from all over the world every year.
