The monastery was built in the 1990s in the traditional Dzong architectural style following a huge support by the gracious Fourth King of Bhutan, Jigme Singye Wangchuk and funding from International and Bhutanese patrons as well.  As of 2006 the monastery was still not entirely completed. Nevertheless the monastery is home to more than 250 monks, many of them being children and young adults.
