Ta Dzong is one of the famous National Museum in the town of Paro in western Bhutan and a perfect place to know this country by its roots.
Ta Dzong is one of the popular tourist attractions and the history of Ta Dzong is also fascinating. The word Ta Dzong means “watchtower” which was built by Choeje Minjur Tenpa, the first governor of Trongsa, as it was used to serve as a watchtower and fortress to protect the Paro Rinpung Dzong. It is located strategically above the Rinpung Dzong on the bank of the river Mangde in a whelk shaped fortress in Paro. It was built in 1649 to protect the undefended Dzong and renovated in 1968 to the house of the National Museum.
