Thimphu Valley Tour
Thimphu Valley Tour Surrounded by green hills, Thimphu, the Capital of Bhutan, is fast becoming a concrete jungle; although they try to retain the old architectural style which is somewhat a relief. Thimphu Chu flows quietly, dividing the valley into two halve. We started with the striking National Memorial Chorten and proceeded to Changangkha Lhakhang, Craft centre and to the Folk heritage Museum. A quick lunch and then again we were off to Pangri Jampa, Dechenphu Lhakhang, Telecom tower to have a birds’ view of the valley and lastly to Thimpu Dzong. Only Bhutanese are allowed inside Pangri Jampa, Dechenphu Lhakhang. Constructed by the queen mother of third king Jigme Dorzi Wanchuk in 1974, the huge National Memorial Chorten on the backdrop of a turquoise blue sky was a striking construction; so was the Trashichhoe Dzong. The old dzong constructed in 1216 and was rebuilt in 1630 by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal and again thoroughly repaired and christened by the Namgyal in 1641. It became the summer residence of Namgyal and Je Khempo (the religious head of Bhutan).
