About Drukgyal Dzong Monastery
Drukgyel is one of the most interesting places to see in Paro because of its history and notoriety. It is one of the oldest monasteries in the area and despite being the victim of a massive fire accident in the 1950s, it has withstood and survived for all to witness it today.
The fort has been renovated and rebuilt, with some new murals and frescoes being added to the plethora of existing ones. Visitors can get a wonderful view of the surrounding Chomolhari mountains from the summit of the Monastery.
