This being the only Sakya Nunnery outside Tibet, the merit to help maintain the continuity of Sakya nuns to practise full-time is inconceivable.

Finally after more than eight years, and many meals out in the open (be it in the hot summer or cold winter), the nuns' prayers for a temple has materialised.
