The Trongsa Dzong, which was built in the year 1644 by Chhogyel Mingyur Tenpa, is a very big fortress with a real labyrinth of beautiful temples, amazing corridors and even offices. Trongsa can be sometimes, for the foreign tourists, a very good and “exotic” “shopping center” in this not so big country, where the local population actually weaves in its own and original textiles from the very beautiful hand - dyed wool and the unique Tibetan - original Bhutanese shopkeepers will sell them at a less amount and at even better competitive prices than the which are now found in the middle of the city of Thimpu.
