The imperial past feels present in Punakha, where an impressive fortress testifies to the heyday of this former capital of Bhutan. The small town acted as the seat of the government until the 1950s and all of Bhutan's kings have been crowned here. The famous citadel, known as a dzong, remains the winter home of the country's official monk body, making it the main attraction in Punakha. Other treats on a trip to Punakha include the warm winter, hearing the local language Dzongkha spoken, and visits to cultural and natural sights. Punakha is in Punakha District.
