The town confers its name to the dzong worked in 1638 that summons the region.
The name is said to have been given by Ngawang Namgyal, the main Zhabdrung Rinpoche, who was chasing down the best region for a dzong to keep intrusions from the south.
At the picked perceive, the Zhabdrung encountered a child named Wangdi playing by the stream and in this manner named the dzong "Wangdi's Palace".
Wangdue is basic in the chronicled setting of Bhutan in light of the fact that in the great 'ol days it was the country's second capital.
Lamentably the dzong burst into flares on 24 June 2012 and was for all intents and purposes obliterated set something aside for the lower dividers.
The mammoth endeavor of redoing is depended upon to continue until 2021.
