Jakar Dzong means the 'Fortress of the White Bird,' and it was constructed in 1667. A group of lamas they were trying to find a place to build a temple and they show a white bird flying overhead in one special area.This was considered a good omen, and the hill was selected as the site for the dzong. Today is one of the most impressive dzongs.
