Wangdichholing Palace

Wangdichholing Palace was built on the site of the battle camp by the Trongsa Penlop Jigme Namgyel, the father of the first King of Bhutan. It was the first palace in Bhutan that was not designed as a fortress. Both the first and second king adopted Wangdicholing as their main summer residence. There are five giant water driven prayer wheels just to the north which is quite interesting to see.
