Mongar Dzong

Location : Mongar

Mongar Dzong was built in 1930 and its design was similar to Lamai Geonpa in Bumthang, the residence of the 1st King Gongsa Ugyen Wangchuck.

This Dzong was constructed in the year as the administrative Headquarter for the District and to house the spiritual monks. The Dzong also houses the artifacts of the old Zhongar Dzong besides the other relics. The Dzong festival Tsechu is held annually in the month of November/December corresponding to 8-10th day of 10th month of Bhutanese calendar year. These dates vary from year to year according to the Buddhist calendar. Astrologers finalize these dates before the year begins.
