Punakha was the capital of Bhutan and the seat of government until 1955, when the capital was moved to Thimphu three hours drive to the west. Built in the 17th century, Punakha dzong is the most beautiful in the kingdom, situated at the confluence of the Mo and Pho Chu, the mother and father rivers, and is reached by a wooden cantilever bridge.
