The prayer house which has been constructed for the visitors on the Peak of Gong Mountain or literally known as Darkhuang Tlang is situated at a distance of approximately 7 kilometres from Lunglei in a small village called Pukpui village in Mizoram, one of the northeastern states in India. Lunglei is an unexplored place which is surrounded by the lush green forest, dotted with clusters of traditional villages and it is also the second-largest city in the state of Mizoram. It is one of the best places for the trekkers, bird watchers and nature lovers. During the trekking one can spot plenty of wildlife, a variety of birds and the best view, the scenic charms of Lunglei are nothing less than a paradise. Literally the meaning of Lunglei is a bridge of rock and it is believed that the name of the place was inspired by a rock that resembles a bridge that was once found in a riverside near Nghasih, a tributary of River Tlawng. Lunglei which is located around 175 km from the state capital of Mizoram; Aizawl is one of the ideal destinations for nature lovers as well as adventure seekers.

There are many places to visit in and around Lunglei like Saza Wildlife Sanctuary, Thorangtlang Wildlife Sanctuary, Lunglei Bridge, Nghasih Stream, Saikuti Hall and many more. Out of them they must-visit places is Darkhuang Tlang or Gong Mountain. In the late 19th century a Mizo prophet Darphawka used to talk with the spirits in Darkhuang Tlang or Gong Mountain and the spirits showed him visions of future events including the coming of the Christian missionaries, saying "White men shall come from beyond the great seas and you should pay attention to their words". These happened years before the animist Mizos knew anything about Christianity.

The region could be reached by local buses and taxis which ply through the route connecting the Pukpui village and the Lunglei town.
