History of Nuns in Ladakh
Ladakh is a high mountain desert in northwestern India. Since the beginning of the tenth century AD, the Tibetan Buddhist culture plays an important part in this region. The famous teacher and translator Rinchen Khando, who founded the first Buddhist University in Nyerma, brought Tibetan Buddhism to Ladakh. That is the historic spot where in 2004 the new nunnery for a group of elderly nuns Chattnyanling has been built.
