The nation's capital is the economic and administrative center, but retains some of the country’s oldest temples. Fans of temples won’t want to miss Changangkha Lhakhang, which is 600 years old, nor the modern National Memorial, which attracts thousands of worshippers on holy days. Try the Botanical Gardens if the clamour of the city proves too much, or the Takin Preserve, home to the eponymous and strange national animal.
