Zang Dhok Palri Phodang is located on top of the Durpin Hill. It was sanctified by the Dalai Lama, the topmost religious leader of the Tibetan Buddhism in 1976. It is also called the Lava Monastery. After the Chinese invasion in Tibet, many important scriptures and holy books were moved out. Some of them are placed in the Zang Dhok Palri Phodang monastery like Shivang Gupta 108 volumes of the Kangyur as well as other important religious books and scrolls. The mesmerising view of the surroundings from the monastery is a sight to behold. It is truly a wonderful monastery.
