With stunnig views of sheer greenery melting into tints and the moisture blurring the distinct images, the Paro valley is one of the most spectacular sites to lay your eyes on in Bhutan. Paro is actually a town that is found in the Paro district that belongs to the Paro Valley of Bhutan. The area also holds a prominent place in the history of Bhutan especially with its link up with the Tibetan culture. It is indeed this district that some rare architectural feats are found and visited and revisited by tourist around the world.
Among these, the Drukgyal Dzong, captures a great deal of the attention as one of the major historic and impressive buildings that belong to the olden days and lies imposing upon the upper part of the Paro valley. This fortress better known as the Victorious fortress looks every inch as impressive and powerful as it once was when it was mainly influential in the victory over the Tibetan invaders, a war led by Gushri Khan in 1644. The tower itself was built in 1647 and although later consumed by a fire, the ruins itself still possess a constant source attraction to the tourists.
The Ringpung Dzong on the other hand means a fortress on a heap of jewels and has just as prominent a history. This is actually a fortress as well as a monastery and owes its origin to the 10th century. For several centuries this five story building served as a place of defense against foreign invasion by Tibetans. Built of stones instead of clay, the building unfortunately succumbed to a fire in 1907 together with most of the treasured articles it contained. However it was later rebuilt by penlop dawa Penjor and currently houses a collection of sacred masks and costumes, most contributed by dawa Penjor together with those belonging to several centuries back.
