History

The Lamaling monastery, head of the Nyingmapa order called Dujom Rinpoche (1904-1987) seats there near the Bhuchu on the ridge of Norbu Ri before happening a natural disaster came up to it. In 1930 the restoration of the monastery held and shifted it on a tableland with a statue of the Guru Rinpoche and his footprints on a stone left in the temple at the present. When the earlier temple was destroyed, the ‘life-supporting’ stone called Lado in Tibetan of Bhuchu reputedly moved as a sign of omen. Thus, Dujom Rinpoche performed ceremonies outside the new building and a three-horned goat appeared and vanished into stone that can still be seen in front of the ruined temple. Tonpa or Sakyamuni’s (present Buddha) holy image displays in the main assembly hall (Tsokchen in Tibetan language).

The present Sangdok Pelri temple and garden has been newly constructed on the hillside and there is a new paved road linked to Lamaling with the Bhuchu valley below. And the statues are one of the best metal arts of Chamdo prefecture. Thus, it became one of the best travel place in Tibet tourism.
