2019 Tashiyangtse Dzong, Eastern Bhutan

With the financial support of the TMPV, University of Vienna, a team of the Loden Foundation completed the digitization of a Kanjur set in 110 volumes at the old Dzong of Tashiyangtse in Eastern Bhutan at the end of 2019. In Bhutan, this project was also supported by the Dratshang Lhentshog Secretariat, Ministry of Home and Cultural Affairs, Royal Government of Bhutan, and Trashiyangtse Rabdye.

Images of the manuscripts as well as catalogue data is incorporated in the rKTs database under the siglum Ty (Tashiyangtse). This Kanjur is part of the Them spangs ma group of manuscript Kanjurs, several of which were produced in Bhutan. These seem to have influenced also later Kanjurs in Ladakh, e.g., the Kanjurs of Stog and Shey.
