What visitors say about Rinpung Dzongkhag
Rinpung Dzong towers over Paro city. The white fortress with its eloquent red decorations makes the near by building tiny. Inside the fortress itself, there are temples and government offices and court. A lot of monks too. The large courtyard inside, along with the temple in the middle is an architectural beauty. We were not able to get into this temple as it opens only in specific times.
