Built by the Tibetan Lam Nagi Wangchuk in 1549, the Jakar Dzong played an important role as the fortress of defense for all the eastern Dzongkhags. The fortress features great views of Bumthang Valley, a watch tower as well as a unique water system that ensures fresh water supply is available year round, in the event of a long seige. Legend has it that a white bird signalled to the people exactly where to build this towering structure, hence the name, Jakar, which translates into "white bird" in Bhutanese.
