History & Culture in Punakha

In the mid-1326, there as of now stood a little religious community with Buddha statue, which is named as Dzong Chug. A well-known Bhutanese legend says the Guru Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche) once forecasted the development and area of Punakha Dzong. In 1637, the first Zhabdrung Rinpoche, ShabdrungNgawangNamgyal, the unifier of Bhutan surely began to develop a Dzong as Guru Padmasambhava anticipated. Only one year, PungthangDechenPhodrang - the embryonic unique Punakha Dzong was finished. At that point the Punakha Dzong started its history of political focus until 1955. More structures were included around later, including the Buddhist sanctuary raised to retain the annihilation of Tibetan attack in 1639 and brazen housetop skilled from the seventh Dalai Lama. 

In 1907, the primary King of Bhutan - UgyenWangchuck got his crowning ritual of DrukGyalpo in Punakha Dzong and made it as the living arrangement castle. What's more, the second King acquired the crown in Punakha Dzong in 1927. In 2011, the fifth King of Bhutan, the present King facilitated his marriage in Punakha Dzong, understood his sentimental romantic tale with his better half.
