Outside the palace, on the right side of the lawn is a temple dedicated to Tsheringma, the Goddess of wealth.Its caretaker, a village elder becomes excited when he talks about the stories and legends of the Goddess Tsheringma, who was transformed from a wrathful demon to a benevolent goddess by the great Tibetan Yogi, Milerapa.
