  • Feluda r galpo te ache...ai jayga tar ktha...
  • Awesome collection of Tibetan items and a vivid glimpse of Tibetan mythology and history is for view. Rare manuscripts and Tibetan idols are stored here.
  • Rather if you want to know history of monarchy sikkim this is your place. After that an institution of Buddhism. Must visit to know Sikkim 100%. One can understand by viewing all historical photos.
  • Great insight into tibetan buddhism and very well explained
  • Unless ur a Buddhist or very much interested in it.. Not much exciting here
