About Ugyen Pelri Palace
The Ugyen Pelri Palace is one of the most fascinating places to visit in Paro because of its relevance today and its rich historical significance as well. Today it serves as the residence of the QueeN Tahoe n Mother of the current king of Bhutan. However, it has existed since the 1900s and is an example of the beautiful Bhutanese architecture and handicrafts.
The structure is a replica of the Zangto Pelri, which used to be known as Guru Rinpoche’s Paradise. Even though the public is not allowed inside the palace, they can always observe it from outside and visit the nearby attractions of the Five Chortens of Paro.
