Rinpung Dzong in Paro, by Anup Kar

During my 3 days Bhutan Trip, I took this photograph on the last day at Rinpung Dzong, a fortress-monastery overlooking the Paro valley. It has a long history. Here a monastery was first built on the site by Padma Sambhava at the beginning of the tenth century, but it wasn’t until 1644 that Ngawang Namgyal built a larger monastery on the old foundations, and for centuries this building served as an effective defense against numerous invasion attempts by the Tibetans.
