Stone Work or Masonry - Dozo

Stone Work or Masonry - Dozo


Traditional architecture in Bhutan is characterized by the use of natural local materials such as rammed earth, bamboo, local timbers, and stone and has adapted to the local topography, climatic conditions and most importantly, cultural traditions and religious beliefs.

Stone arts are used in the construction of the outer walls of large fortresses (Dzongs), temples (Lhakhangs), monasteries (Goenpas), stupas (choetens), palaces, and other buildings.
