  • The monastery was under renovation in April 2019. The monks were strikingly friendly and keen to find information. We were able to buy a small butter lamp there, which caused great hilery. All in all, a nice walk from the centre.

  • Nice place to being there good and well maintain. Must visit this place. Though it was unders renovation during my trip but now i feel its could be best part of your trip if you visit.
  • Enchey monastery is located in Gangtok. The Monastery is famous for the Buddhist sect. Its a rare experience for us to see and study the Buddhist rituals, prayer wheels and chants. Go with a divine feel in your mind and enjoy the surroundings. The Monastery is a must place in the itinerary of Gangtok city tour. Go and see this. I loved it.
