We will visit the the capital of Bhutan - Thimphu. A few years old, Thimphu was built by the late king Jigme Dorje Wangchuk, to replace the ancient capital of Punakha a mountain range away. At a altitude of 7,710 ft in the fertile valley of the Wang Chu river, the capital Thimphu is an engaging blend of the old and the new. A unique law, which retains the forms and motifs of Bhutan's traditional architecture even in new buildings give Thimphu a delightful structural harmony. The capital's most striking visual landmark is the magnificent Tashichhodzong, which is the seat of the Royal Government and Central Monastic Body.
