Picture of Sangdo Gompa at Muktinath

The first temple on entering the Muktinath temple complex is Sangdo Gompa. It used to be the residence of the Muktinath Lamas. At the left of the temple there are some nuns rooms. The original gompa was built by Lama Sangdo at the end of the nineteenth century. It was reconstructed in 1981 by the villagers of Khingar and Jhargot. Old villagers from Jhargot still remember that the so called lama dances were held in front of this gompa. See the next pages for more pictures.
