Bomdila Monastery

Bomdila Monastery, situated in state of Arunachal Pradesh, dates back to the year 1965. It owes its inception to the 12th reincarnate of Tsona Gontse Rinpoche, who got this monastery built before his death in the year 1966. The monastery of Bomdila is an imitation of the Tsona Gontse Monastery, located at Tsona in South Tibet. The main prayer hall of the monastery was added later on by the 13th reincarnate of Tsona Gontse Rinpoche. This hall was later sanctified by His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama, in October 1997.
