Trongsa is the ancestral home of Bhutan’s royal family, from where the first two kings ruled the kingdom. It is about four hour’s drive from Wangduephodrang. The Trongsa Dzong stands right in the valley center. Its labyrinth of temples, corridors, offices, and living quarters for the monks add up to a masterpiece in Bhutanese architecture preserved through professional restoration in 2004. Trongsa is a convenient place to halt for the night if you are traveling to the east or the south of Bhutan. The Trongsa Tsechu (festival) usually falls between late November and mid-December, usually coinciding the Christmas.
