SHECHEN MONASTERY - NEPAL


One the six main Nyingma monasteries of Tibet, was destroyed in the late 1950ís during the Chinese occupation of Tibet. In exile, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910 - 1991) began building Shechen Tennyi Dargye Ling Monastery (1980) in the Kathmandu Valley near the great stupa of Bodhnath. For almost ten years, master craftsmen, stonemasons, sculptors, painters, goldsmiths and master tailors worked to make the Monastery one of the most beautiful examples of Tibetan art outside Tibet.
