#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Gangtok
Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Nestled within a hilly region, Ranka Monastery exudes peace and serenity. Just an hour's drive from Gangtok, the Tibetan Buddhist monastery lies mostly open to the public. Explore the quiet premises, admire the intricate and imposing buildings, and view the large gold-plated statue of Buddha in the main prayer hall. Strolling the hills and courtyards you can find panoramic viewpoints, observe training sessions, or photograph the attractive setting. Plan my day in Gangtok using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
