Full name of site: Dzongs of Bhutan
Short description of site (also include multiple locations if applicable): The Dzongs of Bhutan are the religious, military, administrative, and social centers of their districts. Locations included: Punaka Dzong, Tongsa Dzong.
Criteria (cultural, natural, mixed): Cultural criteria iv (distinct cultural style that can only be found in the Himalayas) and vi (site of annual festivals)
Outstanding universal value / comparative analysis: There may be many fortresses already at the World Heritage List, the Dzong architecture of the Himalayas is a unique style of its own. Also their daily functions, that to this day still exist, cannot be found at other inscribed fortresses (which are either ruins or monuments).
