At the same time, extensive renovation work was undertaken on Punakha Dzong itself, which is now a breathtaking and glorious site as you first glimpse it from the road. Although four catastrophic fires and an earthquake in past times destroyed many historic documents, Punakha Dzong still houses many sacred and historic artifacts and also the embalmed body of Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal.
