The Jakar Dzong or “the Dzong of the White Bird” is perched on the hillock overlooking Chamkhar town and places surrounding it. The interesting thing about the Dzong is that there is a water tower four stairs down behind the Dzong, leading to a water reservoir used for drawing water during battle times in olden days. The three-day festival displays several sacred mask dances. The festival also hosts different types of folk songs and dances. People visit the festival dressed in their finest clothes and the festival is also popular among tourists.
