Ruins of Drukgyal Dzong
|Time zone||BTT (UTC+6)|
Drukgyal Dzong was a fortress and Buddhist monastery, now in ruins, located in the upper part of the Paro District, Bhutan. The dzong was probably built by Tenzin Drukdra in 1649 at the behest of Ngawang Namgyal, Zhabdrung Rinpoche, to commemorate victory over an invasion from Tibet.
In the early 1950s Drukgyal Dzong was almost completely destroyed by fire.
