Welcome to the National Council of Bhutan's website. We're currently in the process of updating our site, so you might encounter some information that's not yet complete. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

National Council Building

The National Council is situated next to Gyalyong Tshokhang at Langjophaka, approximately 2.5 kilometers from the city center, between the Dechen Lam stretch and the Wangchu river.
It occupies the old Banquet Hall and the Convention Centre, which have been remodeled into a single structure within the spacious lawns, gardens, and parking area of the former facility. The main building houses the Session hall, Plenary hall, an executive lounge, a library, the office of the Chairperson, the office of the Deputy Chairperson, offices for members, and offices for assistant research officers.
The building's structural design and architecture showcase intrinsic Bhutanese arts and crafts. The interior of the building is adorned with beautiful traditional paintings that hold rich spiritual significance. The facilities seamlessly blend modern technologies with Bhutanese traditions.
A small canteen is attached to the building, offering food and soft drinks. Five small office units are located outside the main building, serving as the offices of the Secretary General, Secretariat Service Division, Legislative and Procedural Division, Research and Hansard Division, and Information and Communications Division.
