Trashigang Dzong was built in 1659 by Trongsa Penlop, Chogyel Minjur Tempa (1659-1676 AD, the 3rd Deb of Bhutan). The Dzong was then named as Trashigang, "the Fortress of the Auspicious Mountain". The Dzong was expended by Tenzin Rabgye, 4th Desi of Bhutan (1680-1694) and restored it around 1950 by Dasho Dopola, Trashigang Dzongpon.
