The Nechung Monastery is found just underneath the Tibetan Library in Gangchen Kyishong and is one of the touring attractions of McLeod Ganj. It is situated at a separation of 2.5 km from Dharamshala and 3 km from McLeod Ganj. The religious community is a piece of Tsuglagkhang Complex.
It has an incredible significance in Tibetan history and Buddhist religion. Nechung has gone about as otherworldly manual for the Tibetan Government since the eighteenth century. Nechung Monastery is considered as the seat of the State Oracle and defender divinity of His Holiness Dalai Lama and Tibet. The physical medium is called Nechung Kuten.
At the point when the medium goes into a stupor like express, the defender divinity claims his body and gives guidance and forecasts to the Dalai Lama and Tibetan pioneers estranged abroad. The first Nechung Monastery in Lhasa had 115 priests in 1959 and was flattened to the ground amid the Revolution. In any case, six priests figured out how to run away to India to proceed with the mind boggling customs of the Nechung Institution.
