Tashi chho Dzong has been the seat of the government since 1952. The throne room and office of the king, His Majesty’s secretariat and the ministries of home affairs & finance ministry office occupies about 25% of the dzong space. The rest of the space belong’s to the monk body headed by His Holiness The 70th Je Khenpo Truelku Jigme Choeda. Tashi Chhoe dzong is the summer residence of the Je Khenpo and in winter he moves to Punakha dzong which is his winter residence. This trend of summer & winter residence was initiated by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel in the 17th century.

The dzong is located close to Thimphu town, next to the banks of the Wangchhu River. It is an impressively large structure, surrounded by well-kept lawns and beautiful gardens. Just opposite to the dzong lies the Parliament House and the office of the Prime Minister.
