The Trongsa Dzong is one of the grandest Bhutanese monuments. It is built on a ridge & has a very beautiful structure with more than 30 temples. The “watchtower” or the Ta Dzong, overlooking the Dzong on a ridge above the Dzong has a temple to Gesar.

The Trongsa tshechu is one of the oldest Tshechus in Bhutan. It is believed that Tshechus in other parts of Bhutan was spread from Trongsa Dzongkhag. All the chams/dances are just like regular tshechu of other Dzongkhags. On the last day, a Thongdrol is unfurled.

It’s an annual event and during Tshechu period all Government Offices, Private Institutions and Schools remains closed for the entire Trongsa Tshechu period. Even the Farmers take their hand out of their farms and wear their best dresses and come witness the Festival, making it one of the biggest events in the District.
