The graceful Drametse Lhakhang, the monastery, sit high above the city of Paro. The 16th century monastery of the Nyingma sect was built upon a narrow and steep forested ridge. Fanning out beneath the conspicuous wealth of age-old Bhutanese mansions including the fort – Paro Dzong and shrine – Kyichu Lhakhang, standing with historical value and aesthetic supremacy. The nearby Taktsang Monastery, another architectural wonder, is a small drive away.

Drametse is one of the most important temples in eastern Bhutan not only because of its exquisite architectural beauty but also because it holds the UNESCO-recognised Ngacham mask dances. Drametse is also the seat of the living lineage of Pema Lingpa, going back to the origins of Bhutan, and one of the few centres of learning where lay people practise sacred meditation techniques. The temple has great significance for the local community.
The Paro dzong’s correct name, Rinchen Pung Dzong (usually shortened to Rinpung Dzong), means ‘Fortress on a Heap of Jewels’. In 1644 Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal ordered the construction of the dzong on the foundation of a monastery built by Guru Rinpoche. The dzong hosts the monastic quarter with 200 monks, the monks’ classroom Kunrey on the southern side, the mural of the ‘mystic spiral’ – the unique Bhutanese variation on the mandala and The large dukhang prayer hall.
