Chimilung, is a Geluk monastery located in northwest of Lhasa in Tolung Dechen county. The original site was founded in 1040 as a Kadam center and later as a Geluk site around the mid 15th century. Tsongkhapa is said to have visited Chimilung, which derives its name from the fact that he made a prophesy while looking backward at the site. In recent times it has housed a cohort of nuns and is also known for holding practices carried out by monks from Gyume College. Ara Drubtob Tarpe Gyeltsen entered a strict retreat at Chimilung.
