The Shelkar Kangyur (Tib. ཤེལ་དཀར་བཀའ་འགྱུར་, Wyl. shel dkar bka' 'gyur) aka the London Manuscript Kangyur is a manuscript edition of the Kangyur offered to the British Museum by the Indian Government in 1906. The manuscript was copied in about 1712 from a manuscript kept at Shelkar Dzong in Southern Tibet, which had itself been copied from the so-called Tempangma manuscript. It is now in the British Library.
