Chendebji Chorten

Patterned on Swayambhunath Stupa of Kathmandu with eyes painted at the four cardinal points, the Chendebji Chorten is one of the prominent monuments on the way to Trongsa. Built in the eighteenth century by a lama called Shida from Tibet to cover the remains of an evil spirit that was subdued at this spot. The chorten is with eyes painted on the four cardinal points

Trongsa Dzong

Overlooking the Mangdechu River, the Trongsa Dzong testifies to Bhutan’s architectural heritage, political history, rich traditions and culture. This magnificent structure, which has been witness to various significant events, has a rich legacy. Built in 1647 by Chogyal Minjur Tenpa, the then Trongsa Penlop on the command of Zhabdrung has a labyrinth of temples, corridors, offices and living quarters for the monks. Because of its highly strategic position as the only connecting route between east and west, the Trongsa Penlop was able to control the whole eastern region effectively. The annual Trongsa tshechu is hosted during the early winter at Trongsa Dzong.

Trongsa Ta Dzong 

The cylindrical shaped watchtower built in 1652 by Chogyal Minjur Tenpa to oversee the Trongsa Dzong and watching for invading forces was named Ta Dzong. It provides a visitor with more insight into the historical significance of Trongsa in Bhutan’s history. The Ta Dzong is today converted into a museum, which has collections dedicated to Wangchuck dynasty. The artefacts of the museum range from the reign of Jigme Namgyel till His Majesty the Fifth King of Bhutan.

Kuenga Rabten Palace

Situated towards south of Trongsa, the Kuenga Rabten served as the winter palace of second King Jigme Wangchuck. Built in 1928 with superb woodwork and decorations, this splendid building is located at the slope overlooking the mighty Mangdechu. It is surrounded by stonewall with spy holes and five great water prayer wheels. A part of the building is presently used as library by the National Library and Archives, to which the palace is presently affiliated. The trip to Kuenga Rabten from Trongsa offers an intimate insight into the early days of Bhutan’s monarchy, besides enjoying the beautiful expanse of rice terraces in the lower Mangde valley and large waterfall.
