Photographer's Note

A view of Trongsa dzong in central Bhutan. There is a dzong in basically every district of Bhutan. It's a fortresslike building containing the local administration and a monastery. In Bhutan the modern society and the religion, lamaism, live side by side on equal terms. The oldest parts of Trongsa dzong are from the 16th century.
Behind the dzong is the modern town of Trongsa. The building on the hillside in the upper right corner is a watchtower, called the ta dzong.
This is scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
