Rinchen Ling Nunnery

Located in the valley adjacent from Cholung Changtse, this is one of the only active Jonang sites in U-Tsang. The monastery is said to have been a place where Rwa Lotsawa lived. During the lifetime of Kunga Dolchok (1507-1565), Rinchen Ling was a small Jonang monastery. When Takten Damcho Ling became a Geluk monastery in the mid-17th century, Rinchen Ling was then also converted into a Geluk establishment. In the 1990's, it was changed back to a Jonang nunnery.
