Mongar Dzong

The Mongar Dzong was set up in 1930 to supplant the first Shongar Dzong, despite the fact that the first utse (focal pinnacle) dates from a prior age. It’s bizarre on the grounds that it has two doors. There are four lhakhangs in the utse, including a goenkhang (sanctuary devoted to defensive gods) and a Sangay Lhakhang.

The week-long Mongar tsechu is held here in November (seventh to the tenth long periods of the tenth lunar month).
