The original Thimphu Dzong is Do-Ngön Dzong or Blue Stone Dzong built in 1216 by Old Gyalwa Lhanapa (1164-1224) as founder of the Lhapa branch of Drikung Kagyu at Dechen Phodrang Monastery. In the seventeenth century, the followers of Lama Gyalwa Lhanangpa were completely destroyed by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. Zhabdrung rebuilt the fort in 1641 and renamed it Tashichho Dzong.

In 1694, Tenzin Rabgye as the 4th Desi enlarged Dzong, but burned in 1698 and was restored. In 1747, Chogyal Wangchuk as the 13th Desi expanded Dzong and burned again under the reign of Sonam Lhendup as the 16th Desi and Dzong moved to the present location.

His Late Majesty Jigme Dorji Wangchuck took the initiative to renovate Dzong in 1962 and was rebuilt in a traditional way, with no nails and written plans. In 1969, Dzong was sanctified by Je Khenpo Thri Zur Thinley Lhendup and Dorji Lopon Nyizer Tulku.

The main structure of the building is whitewashed, two-story, three-story towers in each of the four corners flanked by a three-level gold roof. There is also a large tower or a large utse. Currently, Dzong serves as the secretariat, the throne room, and the office of King Bhutan. The northern part is the summer residence of Je Khenpo and the Central Monastic Board.
