The Nurgan Regional Military Commission (Chinese: 奴兒干都指揮使司; pinyin: Nú'érgān dūzhǐhuī shǐsī) was a Chinese administrative seat established during the Ming Dynasty, located on the banks of the Amur River, about 100 km from the sea, at modern Tyr, Russia. The seat was nominally established in 1409, but was abandoned in 1435. Nurgan was the site of Yongning Temple (永寕寺), a Buddhist temple dedicated to Guanyin, that was founded by Išiqa in 1413. The founding of Yongning Temple is recorded in a stele with inscriptions in Chinese, Mongolian and Jurchen.
