Yeta Lungkar Gon Shenten Rinchen Ling, a Bon monastery located in Drachen county (Kham), was preexisted by Sog Yungdrungling,  a Bon institution in existence by at least the twelfth century. After the Jungars sacked Sog Yungdrungling, a hermitage was founded at the site in 1715. In 1808, it was reorganized as a monastery by the name of Yulung. In 1925, leaders and local people began to restore the monastery, which had been destroyed in an avalanche in 1868. As of the late 1990's, there were about forty monks at the monastery.
