Dewathang Gewog (Dzongkha: དབེ་བ་ཐང་) is a gewog (village block) of Samdrup Jongkhar District, Bhutan. Dewathang literally means "flat area of happiness". Dewathang has been historically important because of important historical events associated with the area during the British rule in India in the late 1800s and early 1900s. In recent history, a decade ago, the military cantonment has been strategically important for Bhutanese army to conduct operation flush out (of Indian Militant Groups such as ULFA, KLO and Bodo) in December 20013 [1]
