Thimpu Tourist Spots
Tashichhodzong is a beautiful pink roofed fortress located in the front of the SAARC building in Thimpu. The word Tashichhodzong means “The Fortress of the glorious religion”. The annual 5-day Tshechu festival is celebrated in Tashichhodzong. This beautiful fortress is the seat of the government of Nepal. Tashichhodzong was built in 1641 by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal and reconstructed in 1962, by the Late King, His Majesty, King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck.

A short distance from Thimpu, at Dechencholing, is the Royal palace, residence of members of the Royal family except the king. Set among sweeping lawns, ponds and willow trees, this beautiful three storied building is entirely traditional, both in its architecture and in its furnishings

Tangu Cherry
Tangu Cherry is a beautiful monastery, an old building dating back to several hundred years. Tangu Cherry is an important landmark in Thimpu. It has great historical and religious importance attached to it. The beauty and tranquility of the monastery has no bounds.

Thimpu Markets
Shopping is fun at Thimpu. Though there are no big malls or shopping arcades in Thimpu, this is amply compensated by the helpful nature of the shopkeepers and the exclusively beautiful and reasonable handicrafts items available for purchase. The shops stock lovely handicraft items, skillfully woven shawls and decorated prayer wheels.

Unique Fact
Thimpu does not have a single traffic light because it does not suit its Nature. Thimpu's first and the only traffic light was enshrined in a chorten (a small Buddhist shrine). Later it was removed on king's orders to save Thimpu's natural essence and beauty. Only a sprinkling of cars is ever found along the main street and the capital's population is therefore not immediately visible.
