Monpa Education & Cultural Society was formed in 1984 by H.E.the 13th T.G.Rinpoche when he had been studying the Buddhist Philosophy at Drepung Loseling Monastery, Mundgod, Karnataka. At that time he purchased a small piece of land and laid the foundation of a hostel for monks.
Keeping in view the increasing number of students from the Mon region, the Society has gradually constructed a hostel building comprising of three stories with more than thirty rooms. In the hostel, the monks from Mon region studying in Drepung Loseling Monastery are provided free accommodation. At present more than 150 monks are staying there.
