Gargen Chyoling Nunnery (Ghar Gompa)

This monastery is one of the oldest monasteries in the valley. Anila from Chhyonkhar, Purang, Jhong and Putak villages study and live here. Once more than 160 nuns used to live and used to stay with their long braided hair to become Dubral, a higher position of nuns. The monastery was renovated by two monks of Luri Gompa, Upper Mustang about 26 years ago. Lama Chyongi Rimpoche of Ngesdon Osoling Monastery of Swayambu, Kathmandu built the hostel for Anila. Luri Gompa and Taglung Gompa are the only two monasteries in Mustang, which are alike to this monastery.
