Namnanov D. D.

In 2019, the 100th anniversary of the construction of the Jarun Khashor stupa, well-known in the Republic of Buryatia and beyond its borders, was celebrated in the village of Kizhinga, Kizhinginsky District. In 1915, after studying a book about a magnificent stupa in Nepal, Baldan-Dorzho Lama, together with other lamas, like Nymin Shoydor, Tsyrenov (Marhaadine) Shoydok, proposed the construction of a subarga Jarun Hashor at the Kizhinginskiy Datsan. Until now, little is known about the biographies of the initiators and the direct participants in the construction. Among the lamas and believers, Budaev Baldan-Dorzho gabrzha lama en-joyed great respect and prestige. Among people Baldan-Dorzho Lama was called and known by the name “Subarga Ambay”, “Subarga Baldan-Dorjo Lama”.
