One of the finest examples of architecture, the Rinpung Dzong, also known as the Paro Dzong, has a very spiritual environment. Beautifully lit-up at night, the dzong has many illustrations portraying the life of Buddha. A hike to the top of the fortress welcomes you with the spectacular view of nearby valleys. The dzong also holds the colourful annual festival Paro Tshechu which makes it even more impressive than it already is.
Known for its grandeur whose glory enhances with each passing day, rather than fading away, Paro Dzong is located in the heart of the city. A religious site overflowing with faith and splendour is everything which one needs to rejuvenate the mind. Not just a significant holy site in Paro, it also offers panoramic views of the Paro Valley and Paro Chhu river to the visitors. Like most dzongs in Bhutan, it houses monks and is an important administrative centre in the city. The 1995 Little Buddha’s shooting site and a perfect family place, it has an ambience so nice which makes one’s evening even more bright and cheerful.
