Lamay Gompa


Lamay Gompa

Four kilometers (two and a half miles) above the Dzong is a beautiful Royal mansion which dates from the 19th century. It was built by the Trongsa Penlop, Sonam Drugel, who was King Ugyen Wangchuck’s maternal great-grandfather. The King restored Lamey Gompa, and the place became the residence of his two daughters, both very pious. The palace’s main tower had to be destroyed for structural reasons. Formerly a royal monastery, it now houses the Forestry Institute. Coming down to the road, there is an excellent view of the Jakar Dzong and water tower (Chhu Dzong).
