Punakha was the previous capital city of Bhutan and it continues to remain a resident of head Lama named Ja Kempo. Here, you will find Dzong as a stunning and renowned building of Bhutan. The walled fortress of the city contains large numbers of well-known temples and sprawling courtyards. Since Punakha Dzong is the confluence of two famous rivers opposing the backdrop of nearby gentle hills, it constitutes a spectacular venue to enjoy the Punakha Dromchoe festival tour.
The Punakha Dromchoe festival is a unique one celebrated in Bhutan, as it hosts an exclusive recreation by highlighting various battle scenes of the 17th century with the army of Tibet. Local military men or pazaps dress in the traditional battle gear to reenact the ancient battle scene.
Moreover, the reenactment took us back to several years, where because of the absence of any standing army in Bhutan, men belonging to eight different Tshogchens or blocks of the great village in Thimpu came ahead and successfully managed to expel the invading forces of Bhutan. Thus, the victory of men resulted in the formation of a new period involving international peace and long-term stability.
