The Haa Dzong will continue to serve as the headquarters of the Indian Military Training Team (IMTRAT) until the Bhutanese Government finds a new location for them. Whilst the Dzong is occupied by the IMTRAT, the dzongkhag administrative center is in the middle of Haa town and the religious seat is in a temple – Lhakhang Karpo – which is away from the main town and in the middle of a village.
This is one of several temples dedicated to the Haa valley’s protective deity, ‘Ab Chhundu’. The Temple is located 10 km north of Haa and accessed by a short 5-10 mins walk from the road in Gayekha village.
