The Treasury of Lives

Dashchoimbel Datsan was established by the Second Jebtsundampa Khutuktu and the Manzhir Khutagt in 1756 as the first philosophical college of Mongolia. During the time of the Fifth Jetsundampa, it was named and moved from Dolonnuur (Duolon, Inner Mongolia) to its present location in the capital of Khalkha Mongolia. As part of the Ikh Khuree monastic city, the college followed a Gelukpa curriculum based on the writings of Jamyang Zhepa. Although destroyed in 1938 during the purges, the college was rebuilt on the original site in 1994 and continues to be an active site of Buddhist study.
