Mahabodhi Kanubari Branch is located in the Luaksim village of Longding District Arunachal Pradesh. Kanubari is a small town and is mostly inhabited by the people of Wancho tribe. A piece of land was donated by Late Sri Newlai Tingkhatra to Mahabodhi Society to start a Mahabodhi Branch in Kanubari. For this noble act, the Mahabodhi Society is overwhelmed and grateful to the donor Lt. Sri Newlai Tingkhatra and his family members. The vision behind this donation of land was to open a Mahabodhi School, children hostels to house children from remote areas, meditation center to give moral values to the public.
