Dzingchi monastery, a Geluk monastery at the foot of the sacred moutains of Wolkha in central Tibet, was founded by Garmiton Yonten Yungdrung in the tenth century. At one point it housed a Maitreya statue that dated from the monastery's founding; it was later restored by Tsongkhapa, whose student Gyeltsabje Darma Rinchen, the Second Ganden Tripa, would often visit the monastery. Subsquent incarnations would make the monastery their home. It was largely destroyed during the cultural revolution and has not been fully restored.
