Hungarian philologist and orientalist Sandor Korosi Csoma aka Alexander Csoma de Koros, author of the first Tibetan-English dictionary and grammar book lived in the Zangla Palace between 1823 and 1824 while he worked on his dictionary.

 

The Csoma’s Room Foundation, an independent non-profit NGO, registered in Hungary, has been organising the renovation and conservation works of the Zangla Palace and nearby stupas since 2008, along with the building of a solar school construction with local materials in Zangla and the teaching in primary school and conversational English for local children.
