Description

Rizong Gompa, a Gelugpa or Yellow Hat Buddhist monastery, is situated at the top of a rocky side valley on the west of Alchi on the way to Lamayuru. It was established in 1831 by Lama Tsultim Nima under the Gelukpa order, at Ri-rdzong. A nunnery, located about 2 km from the monastery, is called the Jelichun Nunnery or Chulichan (Chomoling). It is also believed that long ago Guru Padmasambhava meditated in the caves around Rizong years before the monasteries were built.
