Bhutan Times - - Home -

14th Jan­uary 2016: A farmer’s mar­ket shed, con­structed upon the Royal Com­mand of His Majesty The King, was in­au­gu­rated at Gan­gola in Mon­gar. The farmer’s mar­ket will im­mensely ben­e­fit the farm­ers of Chali, Tsakaling, and Mon­gar gewogs, who mar­ket their pro­duce at the strate­gic lo­ca­tion, si­t­u­ated at the junc­tion of the Mon­gar-Bumthang and Mon­ger-Lhuntshe high­ways. The farm­ers at this lo­ca­tion had to sit in the open, brav­ing all kinds of weather stolidly to sell their pro­duce, and had been promised a mar­ket shed by His Majesty dur­ing one of His Majesty’s vis­its to the re­gion. The struc­ture with Bhutanese ar­chi­tec­tural fea­tures was built at the cost of Nu. 1.88 mil­lions. Con­struc­tion work started from 12th April 2015 and was com­pleted by 30th De­cem­ber 2015, ex­e­cuted by a team of Royal Bhutan Army per­son­nel. The new mar­ket shed in­cludes a store, im­proved pub­lic toi­lets, and wa­ter sup­ply. The in­au­gu­ra­tion cer­e­mony was graced by His Royal High­ness Gyalt­shab Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, His Majesty’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive in the east.
