Gomphug Kora Yenlag Tsizhung Lobdra
Guru Rinpoche visited and blessed the place in the 8th century AD. Later the Zhung Dratshang established a Lobdra under the administration of Trashigang Rabdey. Then in 2011, His Holiness the Je Khenpo converted it into an institute for astrology. Today young students, both monks and laity from six eastern Dzongkhags are pursuing their studies in astrology in this institute. A similar institute was also established in Gaylegphug in 2013 for the children in the southern regions.
Semdhen Rigpei Pelkhang
The Institute for Science of Mind was established on 18th Day of the Wood Male Horse Year, corresponding to 11th October 2014 by His Holiness the 70th Je Khenpo at Semtokha, Thimphu. It was established to not only propagate the Buddha Dharma, the state religion of Bhutan but also to teach interested learners a holistic approach to develop both inner mind and external body concurrently. Thus the institution is inspired to promote the unique developmental policy of Bhutan, the Gross National Happiness, and to prepare our youths to become good citizens with humane values. It is also designed to teach those students who aspire to learn our Buddhist philosophies and traditions. The institute will also provide opportunity to interested civil servants, teachers and others who wish to learn the Dharma and upgrade their education simultaneously.
Tashi Choeling Zorig Pelkhang
Retired Lam Neten Ganapati initiated the construction of the temple in 2006 following the words of Polokhen Rinpoche saying that Bhutan would experience greater peace and prosperity if a Lhakhang was constructed there. The 70th Je Khenpo funded the construction and also consecrated it in 2006. Then in 2009, His Majesty the Fourth King established a Zorig Pelkhang (institution for traditional arts and crafts). Since then the place has become an important institute for the monks of the Zhung Dratshang from all the 20 Dzongkhags to learn traditional arts and crafts.
