A former capital attracting tourists & pilgrims alike

The city of Punakha was once the capital of Bhutan, and still plays a significant role in its political and economic scene. Today, the agrarian heart of the country with two rivers flowing through is a great draw for tourists. Famed among the country’s many fortress-monasteries, the Punakha Dzong is also the most beautiful, and attracts pilgrims and tourists alike. The regal past and the religious influences have lent Punakha a serene charm.
