The Ta Dzong, a cylindrical stone construction mounting five storeys, was built in 1652 by Chogyal Minjur Tempa, a task entrusted to him by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. After more than 350 years, it has been revivified into a sophisticated museum that represents a stylish blend of tradition and modernity. There are 224 items on exhibit including a blessed image of Sung Joenma Dorji Chang, a bronze figurine of Pema Lingpa, made by himself, and a number of centuries-old treasures like dance and ritual costumes and objects, ancient prayer books, paintings and scrolls, and textiles. The Ta Dzong is a living museum and the main lhakhang in the Utse is devoted to the Maitreya Buddha Gyaltsab Jampa, also acknowledged as the Future Buddha.
