Perched on a hillock in Gangzur geog in Kurtoe, the Jangchubling Lhakhang was built in the 18th century by Pekar Jamtsho who was from Paro. At the age of 27, he traveled to Trongsa and from there further east to Kurtoe. At Jangchubling, he built a small shrine and two stupas. In the 1940s Her Royal Highness, the late Ashi Wangmo, who became a nun and led a religious life, sponsored the establishment of a Shedra, a Centre for Buddhist teachings at Jangchubling.
With guidance from the 16th Karmapa, Ashi Wangmo was instrumental in transforming the sacred temple to its present grandeur. She administered the construction of the existing main Lhakhang and named it as Dargay Choling Lhakhang.
