Description:

This engraving by William Daniell was made from an original drawing by Samuel Davis and became plate 5 in their book, 'Views in Bootan'. The river Thimphu Chu (or Wang Chu) descends rapidly towards Bengal. This view was made some three miles below the Tashicho Dzong, the valley's mighty 17th-century fortress that today houses Bhutan's National Assembly and the King's throne room. It is also the summer residence of the Je Khenpo or the religious head of the Bhutanese.

The bridge in Davis's sketch looks insubstantial, but in fact it was 15 feet wide. The accompanying text reads: "The building on the foreground was converted into a post to command the passage of the river, in the course of the insurrection which happened when the Embassy was at Tassiduon." In the village on the summit of the central hill lived a fraternity of gelongs - Buddhist novice monks.
