This monastry in the Pin Valley lies between the small villages of Attargo (9 km) and Gulling (3 km). On the doorsteps of the outer building they were still busy painting the snow lions and renewing the pavement, but the inside temple was fully restored.
Here we were guided by a 13 year monk, who enthousiastically showed us around. In this temple, which design dates from the year 1330, and is of one of the oldest Buddhism sects, we were free to make pictures.

Kungri Gompa..at Pin valley..a must visit..the understand the old influence of Buiddhism here and rejuvinating lives of the Monks here..

Kungri gompa is located around 10 km from Attargo and 3 km from Gulling in Pin Valley. Attargo itself is located around 12 km from the subdivisional district headquarter of Spiti. The river Spiti has to be crossed in order to reach the Pin Valley, most of which has been declared a National Park.

The gompa does not merely holds the distinction of being the second oldest one in the Spiti valley, rather it also happens to be the only gompa following the Nyingmapa Buddhism in the valley. Nyingmapa is the oldest order of Tibetan Buddhism.

The Kungri gompa was erected in the first half of the 14th century, around 1330 and consists of three separate rectangular blocks, all of which stand facing the eastern direction. Recently, Kungri gompa ganied a lot of attention because of the foreign aid it received for its renovation work. However, despite renovation work, the gompa provides the strong impact of the tantric cult that held sway over the Pin valley in the bygone era.
