renowned Sikkimese Saint called Drubwang Pema Tsondu
founded this monastery in 1840 A.D. giving a religious name as “Chokhor
Yangtse Gon”. After about 20 years, its devotees increased to other
adjoining villages including Tshochhen and Pheri.Therefore, for the convenience of all, the monastery
was shifted to Matsang hillock, transferring all the belongings
while leaving the old structure as Manilhakhang for the nuns.
