  • It's where the Lamas reside and pray. This building is huge and is clearly visible from road, however it's not the grandeur but rather the serenity and tranquility of this place that attracts a lot of people. During my visit, some construction works were going on, which dampened my mood a little bit. Otherwise it's a must visit place especially for someone interested in Buddhist philosophy.
  • One of the less travelled places by the tourists in Darjeeling. But this is indeed a must visit place for anyone who comes to Darjeeling. A beautiful place with a peaceful environment. It is one of the oldest monasteries of this place. And the biggest.
  • When we visited in Dec 2017, the monastery was under renovation. Beautiful view of the hills around, small cafe that serves coffee in serene surroundings. Small prayer room at the entrance with prayer wheel and chanting during prayer time is a nice experience.
  • A very beautiful monastery with a coffee shop to sit in and have something. The monks are very nice and welcoming.
  • Amazing destinaton for tourists. Anyone can visit and offer puja in this monastery. Yes one thing is for sure that photography is not allowed inside the prayer hall. One restaurant is there where you can find some traditional/local foods and can buy souvenir items attached with the restaurant.
