The four-story building will be home to Rinpoche and Rosa, as well as their attendants during the summer retreats in Samtengar. The ground floor will be Rinpoche and Rosa’s residence, while Rinpoche’s attendants will stay on the second floor. During retreats, the third floor will house the Gar personnel as well as regular residents, while the fourth floor will host donors who made significant contributions to the Gar.

Construction of the pavilion in front of the building is currently being planned and should commence in the coming weeks.
