DHARAMSHALA, JULY 2: A massive fire broke out at the Taktsa Gon Geden Tashi Choesang ling in Zoege County in Sichuan province on Monday, reported the Tibet Times. The exact cause and the extent of damage to property have not been ascertained yet. The fire gutted the main chapel of the monastery's deity.

Taktsa Gon Geden Tashi Choesang ling is a monastery belonging to the Gelug (yellow hat sect) tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Founded by the Jhachang Choeje Lhundup Pal Sangpo, the first in Taktsa lineage, the monastery was destroyed during the Cultural Revolution.

The sixth Taktsa Lama started renovation works of Thoesam Ling and Sangag Toegyue monastery and built the Sorig Shenphen Ling and Dhuekhor Evam Choekhor Ling.

The 349 year old monastery had been the residence of three previous Taktsa lineage holders.

This is the third incident of fire in a Tibetan monastery in less than a year. Some 70 nuns' quarters of a nunnery in the premises of the famous Serta Larungar monastery in Sichuan were gutted in a fire in January this year. The main prayer hall of the 433-year-old Lithang monastery was gutted in a fire that broke out on the night of Nov. 16, 2013.
