Like its sister regional house of the byes college, which it abuts on its western side, this khang tshan too was destroyed by the shelling of se ra in 1959. It was completely rebuilt from the ground up in the 1980's. It would appear that many of the monks who were members of the larger monasteries of gtsang would enter byes gtsang regional house, while monks from smaller monasteries and/or from outlying areas would enter smad gtsang.
