Taktse Rinchen Gang is the monastery founded in 1119 by the famous Kadampa master Gyergom Zhonnu Drakpa (1090-1171). It seems that it was still a Kadampa monastery in 1346, the year that Drubchen Namkha Gyeltsen took ordination there. It later became a Geluk monastery. Sera Jetsun Chokyi Gyeltsen (1469-1544/1546) became abbot of Rinchen Gang in 1522. The twenty-fourth  Ganden Tripa Jampa Gyatso (1516-1590) studied there as a child and later became its abbot, but was forced to flee when the monastery was attacked by the Pakmodrupa army.
