Due to earthquakes, monsoon rains and severe weather conditions, combined with the fact that the building materials available at the time were of poorer quality and funds at the time of the initial building were limited, many of the facilities have sustained major damage with cracks, leaks and deterioration of structures, doors and windows. The aspiration for the coming months is to destroy old structures, rebuild and renovate buildings, replace all doors and windows, update plumbing and septic systems and improve safety and suitability of all buildings for the monks residing at Mindrolling. The repairs of the outer façade of the monastery and the walls and the building of newer structures around the great Stupa of World Peace are also underway.
Reconstruction of the Ngagyur Nyingma College of Mindrolling is also going on. The first phase of demolition of the old living quarters and the temple has begun. Many cracks, leaks and poor construction materials of the older buildings and the need for more housing necessitated the rebuilding. Former repairs were not effective and following several discussions and meetings it was decided to demolish the older buildings and reconstruct the entire Shedra. The new complex will also cater to the increased number of monk studying at the Shedra. Plans include the build of 87 rooms, a larger temple, kitchen and dining area. The project is estimated to take 2-3 years to complete.
