This Dzongdrakha temple was blessed by Mahasida Gyembo Dorji, the great follower of Milarelpa and he discovered many hidden treasures from this cliff. Guru Rimpoche also tamed the Naga devil and converted to local deity of this area. You can see many ausipicious signs here.

This is a very old monastery also housing the government offices. The old wooden carvings are unique, so are the paintings and the Buddha statue.

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.
