THE TIBETAN TEMPLE

These sanads make out a connected story.  The temples and the monastery were situated with the main objective of
encouraging the interests of the British and the Tibetan trade and political relationship. Religion was, it appears, more of a cloak. Warren Hastings had an eye on Tibet and Bhutan.   He had interfered in the ware between Bhutan and Cooch through the Panchen Lama of Tibet during the infancy of Dalai Lama in 1772-73, two envoys were sent to Hastings, one of them was a Tibetan named Pyma and the other was as mentioned an Indian, Puran Gir Goassain.

Warren Hastings drew up a truce with Bhutan on the 24th April 1774. He had sent missionaries to Tibet, which included George Bogle, Dr. Hamilton and Puran Gir Gossain.   Gour Das Basak mentions: "In this mission as well as in the second attempted embassy in Tibet under Mr. Bogle in 1779, in the 3rd under Captain Turner on 1783, and in the last, under Puran Gir Gossain himself at the closing period of the states man's career in 1785, are to be sought all the important services that the great Gossain has rendered to the British Government."3
