Welcome to the National Assembly of Bhutan website.

Parliament Building

The Parliament of Bhutan is located on the left bank of the Wangchu river opposite the Trashichhodzong in Langjopakha, Thimphu.

The main parliament building (Gyalyong Tshokhang) which houses the National Assembly is one of the largest modern structures in the capital. Built in traditional architectural style with stone and intricate woodwork, the rectangular structure has towers at its four corners and encloses a cobbled stone courtyard. Most of the space on the ground floor is dedicated to the ornate Assembly hall that has seating for members as well as VVIPS, diplomats and the public.

Besides the offices of the National Assembly Speaker, the secretary general and the Assembly secretariat, the Parliament building also houses the offices of the prime minister, the opposition leader and the foreign ministry.
