News Desk: Pema Khandu, the Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh on July 20 inaugurated the prayer hall with a statue of Guru Padma Sambhava at Chumi Gyatse in Tawang district. Despite the religious significance of the area to the local Tibetians and the Monpa community, the Chumi Gyatse lacked proper infrastructure to fulfill the aspirations of the locals. In a joint effort by the Indian Army and Arunachal Pradesh CM, the prayer hall project was initiated in May 2018 and was completed in June 2020.
Along with this construction, the Indian Army and Civil Administration has improved the connectivity to the remote location by constructing a motorable road.
Pema Khandu dedicated the prayer hall to the people of Arunachal Pradesh. He expected that the prayer hall would boost tourism to the remote areas.
Arunachal Chief Minister, Pema Khandu on twitter stated, “Inaugurated the Prayer hall at Chumi Gyatse along with Padmashree Lama Phuntsok, Maj Gen DS Rana, GOC Blazing Sword Div. & Brig Sanjeev Dhar, Cdr. East Tawang Brigade.
