Bhutan's biggest metropolis, Thimphu (; Dzongkha: ??????[t?imp?u]; formerly known as Thimbu or Thimpu) is the principal town of the Kingdom of Bhutan. Located in the west center of Bhutan, the nearby village is one of the Bhutan Delta's main districts, the Thimphu District. In 1955 the old Punakha metropolis was superseded by Thimphu, and in 1961 His Majesty the Third Druk Gyalpo Jigme Dorji Wangchuck proclaimed Thimphu the metropolis of the Kingdom of Bhutan.
