about kopan monastery

Kopan Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery near Boudhanath, on the outskirts of Kathmandu, Nepal. It belongs to the foundation for the preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), an international network of Gelugpa dharma centers, which once served as its headquarters.  The monastery was established by the FPMT founders, Lamas Thubten Yeshe and Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, who bought the property from Nepal's royal astrologer in 1969. The name Kopan Monastery comes from the name of the hill on which it was built. A great place to visit in Kathmandu.
