Standing above the beautiful Dzogdrakha village, these holy temples provide blessings from the three sister goddesses of long life.

An amazing architecture marvel. Bhutan is unique for its architectural beauty and so is the temple

This is a very interesting location for a few hours visit from Paro. It's a powerful destination where four different temples complement each other. Revered by the local people, it offers an interesting insight into local cultures away from the hustle of more popular (and crowded) destination surrounding the airport.

Architecturally beautiful Temple that sits majestically along the River. The walk to the longest suspension bridge is also worth it with its many varieties of tropical flowers.

This Dzong dominates the valley over Paro, and you can instantly see why it’s particular location was chosen. Inside was ornately painted (and for our visit decked with flags for a Royal visit). All in all a worthwhile trip

One of the reasons I was interested in visiting Bhutan was culture and seeing things you don't normally see in other countries. Every location I visited was an example of unique Architecture and culture. Sure you would see things such as coke like any country but when it comes to buildings ery unique. I think this is worth a visit. From what I remember there was a cool view of Paro valley

This dzong towers over Paro. It is not as impressive inside as the Punakha dzong. But we were able to see part of a multi-day ceremony involving 30-40 monks chanting and playing drums and horns in the temple. So it is well worth walking through and checking to see what events are happening.

This is probably the first Dzong you'll visit after landing in Paro. It will introduce you to the wonderful architecture and symbology of Bhutanese Buddhism. It is very colorful, immensely detailed, and the temple is beyond my ability to describe something so spiritually commanding. It is a sacred space, and we are fortunate to be admitted.

The Dzongdrakha Temple is a popular temple complex which has around 4 temple monasteries and is situated on a cliff side. The view of the temple is just amazing and along with its surroundings, it offers a nice panoramic view. The four different shrines are dedicated to lord Tara, Tsheringma, Guru and Jowo Jampa.
