TRONGSA Dzongkhag (1,800km2 )
…is the Dzongkhag where the Royal Family comes from. The first King, Ugen Wangchuck was the Penlop (lord) of this Dzongkhag. Therefore, every single crown prince has to be designated as Trongsa Penlop (also called Tshuche Penlop) to be recognized as a crown prince formally.
Geographically, Trongsa dzong is also important, situated where the south- north road and the west-east road meet. Consequently, most of the people travelled through this barrier.
