This act is believed to have earned the prince great merit and is considered a significant event in Buddhist mythology.
The monastery was established in the 1970s by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche, a prominent Tibetan Buddhist lama, and has since become an important center for Buddhist study and practice. It is home to a community of monks and nuns who engage in meditation, chanting, and other religious activities. Visitors can attend teachings and ceremonies, and may even have the opportunity to meet with some of the resident monks.
