Ralang Monastery

Ralang Monastery is a Buddhist monastery of the Kagyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism. According to legend, Ralang was built after the fourth Chogyal came back from his pilgrimage, when the 12th Karmapa performed the Rapney (blessing). He threw grains from his residence in Tsurphu Monastery in Tibet and where the grains fell, eventually, became the site for the Ralang Monastery.
