The place is worth a visit, if you're fond of looking at authentic history. And must go with a guide, who can talk to you about each wall painting

This is a centuries old Dzong. The wooden carvings are very good. If you climb up one of the staircases at the back, you can see the river and also Paro town in the distance. Nice place for photographs.

Interesting paintings, architecture, easy to walk through and overall a good place to visit while in Paro. The walk from the Dzong back to the road is very easy and pleasant through the trees and across the old bride.

Yet another temple. Just skip it. Hike the Tiger's Nest and get out of Bhutan. There's nothing to see here.
