Tayul Gompa Monastery


Tayul Monastery was constructed in the starting of the 17th century by a Dugpa lama, Serzang Rinchen of the Khan region of Tibet. A popular story goes that while performing the circumambulation of the sacred peak of Drilburi, Lama Serzang Rinchen spotted an enchanting glade in the juniper forest above the Kyor. He pointed the spot out to his fellow pilgrims and concluded that the site was an auspicious one for constructing a monastery. This was how the Tayul Gompa came into being.
