TRIDOM HERMITAGE OR NUNNERY
was built when the King Trisong Detsen offered his queen to Padmasambhava. The Padmasambhava concealed lots of treasures in the Kiri Yangdzong cave above Tridom. Yeshe Tosgyel herself also remained in meditation in Tridom for many years, which is why the original nunnery was constructed at this particular point. There is medicinal hot springs within the nunnery which can be considered to be the cleanest natural hot spring in Tibet and it is full of visitors during the whole year. There are around 130 nuns at the present in the nunnery.
