Mongar Dzong

Mongar Dzong – Rebuilt in 1953 and is bit unusual with two main entrances. It is two-storey high with the utse (central Tower) in the centre of the courtyard. It is much smaller as compared to the other Dzongs in Bhutan. The original fortress of the region was in Shongar and the present Dzong replaced it in 1930s. Like most other Dzongs, it is the administrative headquarters for Mongar district
