Thruepang Palace is situated just a little ahead of the Trongsa Dzong near the local vegetable market. This palace was built by the second King Jigme Wangchuck and is the birthplace of the third King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck. It is not very grand and resembles a large house with a courtyard. This courtyard has a number of traditional houses which were used by the entourage of the King when he used to come to stay. It is symbolic of the lifestyle led by the monarchs who used to change valleys as per the season. The palace also contains valuable traditional paintings and is still used by the present King to reside in when he travels through Trongsa. It is advisable to follow appropriate clothing etiquette while visiting the Palace.
