  • Nice peaceful place. Something folks from the urban world can really appreciate. Beautiful architecture. Was there when the monastery students were learning and reciting hymns - out if the world experience.
  • A small monastery located around 5 km from Gangtok city center. This place is very clean and tidy. You can have an amazing view of mountains from this monastery. Must visit if you want to experience some peace of mind.
