The Punakha Dzong, often referred to as the 'Palace of Happiness', is the second oldest and second largest dzong in Bhutan. This spectacular emblem of Bhutanese religious architecture sits right at the confluence of the Mo Chhu and Pho Chhu rivers and is perhaps the obvious key to unlocking Punakha’s secrets.

So start your visit here. The dzong is believed to be prophesied by Guru Rinpoche. The ‘one hundred pillar hall’, which has exquisite murals, is a sight to see. The Nag Yul Bum Temple has an original volume of the Kanjur, the holy book of the Drukpa school of thought, in gold.
