Kungarabten nunnery Trongsa
About 15 miles from Trongsa is the winter palace of second King Jigme Wangchuk. It is a splendid building with superb woodwork and decorations. The 1st floor was used as storage for food, 2nd floor as the residence of royal attendance and the army, 3rd floor as the royal residence and king's chapel. Part of this floor is presently used as Library. The top floor is an alter room with statues of Sakyamuni, the Shubdrung and Guru Rinpochey. Right above the palace is the nunnery; it is about 40 minutes walking uphill. There are about 70 nuns enrolled.
