Jamyang Choekorling Monastery is one of the ancient Buddhist Monastery at Tawang in the state of Arunachal Pradesh in North East India. The Monastery was first established during the era of the 6th Dalai Lama of Tibet – Tsangyang Gyatso. The Monastery flourished well in the peaceful and quiet region for centuries, until of late in history, the state of poor economy of the local and regional communities has constrained in the development of the Monastery.
The communities realizing the limited prospect in visualizing any development of the monastic institution, from their limited economic condition and outside support, has requested, through The Department of Religion & Culture - Central Tibetan Administration of the exiled Government of Tibet, Sera Jey Monastery in taking over the custody and administration of their Monastery.
Considering the earnest appeal by the community of Tawang and their monastery's plight, the general body committee of Sera Jey Monastery responded positively and took the custody of Jamyang Choekorling Monastery.
Sera Jey Jamyang Choekhorling Monastery was formerly registered in 2006 under the State of Arunachal Pradesh Societies Registration Act 1860, bearing Registration No. SR/ITA/2373.
Extensive development programs were initiated to create resources and facilities to dispense spiritual needs of the community and to build the foundation for an important learning institute of Buddhist studies.
