Contemporary Publication - F Spencer Chapman writes in Lhasa the Holy City , 1940, London: Readers Union Ltd. p.62, "Soon we saw Pede Dzong on the end of a point running out into the lake. It is just like an old Scottish castle. Unlike Nangartse Dzong it is now ruined. The village lies behind." [KC 29/11/2005]
