The Office of the Gyaltshab started the operation of the Guesthouse of His Majesty’s Retired Armed Force Society in Mongar yesterday. The Guesthouse will provide free accommodation to retired armed force personnel and their immediate family members while visiting Mongar on medical treatments or during transits. Dining facilities will also be available on payment of minimal charges.

His Royal Highness The Gyaltshab inaugurated the 31-bed guesthouse on December 9, 2016 but its operation was delayed as a major maintenance had to be undertaken.

The Guesthouse was instituted on the Command of His Majesty The King as one of the welfare initiatives to the retired armed force personnel. The initiative is expected to ease problems associated during their visit to the Regional Referral Hospital in Monger.

The Guesthouse will be managed by the His Majesty’s Retired Armed Force Society, which can be reached through the toll free helpline 999.
