Thimphu - Bhutan

Paro


Thimphu has a population of approximately 50 000 people, made up primarily of civils servant and tradesmen. It was established permanent capital in 1952-1953 but was at the time only a dzong surrounded by some shaks. Contrary to much of modern cities, Thimphu preserves a pronounced local architectural character, and this thanks to the directives of the government.
