The Driglam Namzha

The Driglam Namzha codifies the traditional rules for the construction of the dzongs as well as ordinary buildings. Under the direction of an inspired lama the fortress is constructed by citizens who historically participated as part of their tax obligation to the state.[1] Modernly, however, traditional structures are built by wage laborers,straining the government's ability to repair and preserve dzongs in particular.
