Ah rangjung ("rangzen"), the Self-arisen Syllable Ah
After entering Beyul Rowaling through the western path, about one hour's walk past the Dzamdar Gora one can see the Ah rangjung on a rock. It is situated by the main trail in Zhablug or Syapluk, a winter settlement. This is a syllable Ah in the umed Tibetan script that was introduced by Thonmi Sambhota, a minister of king Songtsen Gampo of Tibet in 7th century.
