Kungzandra Monastery is a Buddhist Monastery in the Tang Valley of middle Bhutan. The Monastery lies at an altitude of 3,350 metres (10,990 feet) in the concave of a rock face. Guru Rinpoche and his devotee Namkhe Nyingpo are said to have meditated here at the end of the 8th century. The present Monastery, however, was established in 1488 by Pema Lingpa.
