Drubgyud Choeling Monastery Lumbini/Nepal
Since Dec. 2011 supported by KHCP

Drubgyud Choeling Monastery is located in Lumbini, which is the birthplace of Lord Buddha. Lumbini is situated 150 km southwest of Kathmandu in Nepal and is a symbol of peace and compassion of the Lord Buddha for all the sentient beings.

In 1996, Venerable Shangpa Rinpoche accepted a request by the Dharmo Dhaya Buddhist Committee to undertake the construction and management of a Monastery, within the master plan, on a 1,500 square meters plot of land.

The Grand Inauguration Ceremony of the monastery took place on 21 Nov 2001.
