Nugko Jampa Ling

Buddhist Site in Samye

The Jampa Ling, on the western side of the Samye complex, is the site of Samye’s Great Debate, which determined the course of Tibetan Buddhism. On the right as you go in, look out for the wall mural depicting the original design of Samye, with zigzagging walls. There is an unusual semicircular inner kora (pilgrim circuit) here that is decorated with images of Jampa.
