"JANGCHUB CHOELING NUNNERY"



Jangchub Choeling Nunnery situated at Singsur, near Lhou village, Tawang, was built by H.E.the 12th T.G.Rinpoche in 1960 with a vision to promote Buddhism in the Mon region. Jangchub Choeling Nunnery is better known as Singsur Ani Gonpa. The structure of the nunnery got dilapidated by the end of 20th century. The attention of H.E.the 13th T.G.Rinpoche was attracted towards the pitiable condition of the place where three nuns led their austere life in the service of the great ascetic Lama Jangchub Palsang. There was no proper structure even for their humble living.

Hence, under his noble guidance the Society took up the responsibility of renovation, expansion and over all improvement in the living environment and functioning of the old Singsur nunnery. At present, there are ninety five resident nuns. The Society aims to increase the intake capacity of the nunnery to cater to the increasing demand for entry in to this institution.

Further, for proper traditional and modern education for nuns of the Mon region, the Society took up the construction of building for Singsur Nunnery School in the year 2005-06 with the grants received from Govt. of India, completed the construction of the building and has handed it over the administration of the nunnery.
