21 Septem­ber 2016:

The res­i­dents of Trong vil­lage in Zhem­gang, which has been pre­served as a heritage vil­lage due to its un­usual tra­di­tional ar­chi­tec­ture, re­ceived Khimsa land as Kidu from His Majesty The King. The 27 house­holds re­ceived 9 dec­i­mals of land each around the Zhem­gang throm.

His Majesty vis­ited Trong, which is lo­cated in the heart of Zhem­gang town, in Septem­ber 2014, and met with the peo­ple liv­ing there. With some of the houses over hun­dred years old clus­tered close to each other with cob­bled foot­paths in be­tween, the unique vil­lage re­tains a me­dieval charm, and has been rec­og­nized as a spe­cial place to be pre­served.

Dur­ing the Royal Visit, His Majesty Com­manded that the vil­lagers, who have agreed to pre­serve their tra­di­tional homes in or­der for the vil­lage to re­tain its tra­di­tional beauty, would be granted land around Zhem­gang, so that they are able to en­joy the ben­e­fits of de­vel­op­ment.

The plots were iden­ti­fied and al­lo­cated in ac­cor­dance to His Majesty’s Com­mand, and the Kidu de­liv­ered to the peo­ple by the Zhem­gang Dzongdag to­day.
