In the year 1352, Zuri Dzong was built as a fort with a 5 storey main building. This is very well protected even today by a bridge and double walls.
Highlights: Zuri Dzong has some phenomenally fine murals in the upper chapels. One of these murals is dedicated to the protector Zaa. You can undertake a hike from Gönsaka Lhakhang to the Zuri Dzong. The peak of the Zuri Dzong is an ideal spot to have a bird eye view of the complete Paro Valley. This is the oldest Dzong of Bhutan. Here you can come across a cave where Buddha once came in the 8th century to meditate.

It is something that you can stare at for hours in absolute awe and wonder.
