Drukgyal Dzong was a Fortress and Buddhist monastery, now in ruins, located in the upper part of the Paro valley in Paro District of Bhutan. The Dzong was probably built by Tenzin Drukdra in 1649 at the behest of Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal to comemorate victory over an invasion from Tibet. In the early 1950's Drukgyal Dzong was almost completly destroyed by fire. Arindam Mukherjee..
