  • The monastery has a breathtaking view. when i visited in january 2013 the lama of monastery had passed way and monastery inner sanctum was closed due to his last rites. witnessed the preparation of his last rites and it was phenomenal. The grandeur of the event was amazing . People from all walks of life came to have his last view. the upkeep of monastery is amazing and beautifully managed. There is a ground adjacent to the monastery where we witnessed a football match. A must visit place if you are visiting kalimpong.
  • Nice monastery, a good religious centre for the people and a great spot for tourists to spend some time and take pictures. It is worth a visit.
  • It is supposed to be a very important site for present day Buddhism. On a first glance it is an idyllic beautiful place, with a brilliant view of the Kanchendzonga, might I say, the best viewpoint possible there.

It was consecrated in 1976 by the visiting Dalai Lama. The monastery houses many rare scriptures that were brought into India after the invasion of Tibet in 1959. It also houses the 108 volumes of the Kangyur. It is also popularly known as the Lava Monastery. The view from the hill-top is breathtaking.
  • I often visit this place. Best monastery
