Current day Zangla Village has no Monastery only a Nunnery. Zangla Palace is sometimes called Zangla Monastery due to a mistake made first probably by Tivadar Duka, biographer of Alexander Csoma de Kőrös, and later by Ervin Baktay, an Indologist who visited Zangla in 1928 to identify the locations related to Alexander Csoma de Kőrös, and suffering from malaria fever, described Zangla Palace - probably due to the Shrine and some monks living there - as a Monastery.
