There was a smaller building here called Dzong Chu (Small Dzong) that housed a statue of Buddha. It is said that Shabdrung ordered the architect, Zowe Palep, to sleep in front of the statue, while Palep was sleeping, Shabdrung took him in his dreams to Zangtopelri and showed him the palace of Guru Rimpoche.
