Guru Padmasambhava, the great Buddhist saint and the restorer of Buddhism in Tibet, had prophesied during his travels to Tibet in the 7th century, that amongst the holy hidden lands or "Bey-Ney"; personally consecrated by him, "Bey-Yul Demazong" Sikkim, was the holiest. Here he had hidden a vast religious treasure of Holy Scriptures, icons, etc. to be discovered and interpreted in the future. It was the fulfillment of this prophecy that Lhatsun Chenpo, Rikzen Chenpo and Ngadak Sempo Chenpo, came to Sikkim to propagate Buddhism. The three monks met at Yuksom in 1641 and coronated the first Chogyal - the Religious King. These events have been given shape to rich heritage of Buddhism in Sikkim manifesting in over 200 monasteries, chortens, and holy caves and influencing the society in general.
