This is Gachu white stupa in Yongjin County too. According to Tibetan history it is hard to decide the founder of the stupa and the year that the stupa has built. Gachu white stupa is situated in the sourthern part of Shamba Bumling monastery. However according to the new edition of <<མདོ་སྨད་ཆོས་འབྱུང་།>> the stupas was built by King ཀྲི་ཀྲི and some other books also mentioned to be founded by some other historical figures. However, ཀྲི་ཀྲི is widely accepted in the mainstream.
