Pemayangtse Monastery, Sikkim

4.6
One of the oldest monasteries in the state, Pemayangtse Monastery provides a glimpse into the life of ta-tshang--"monks of pure Tibetan lineage." Colorful paintings and sculptures decorate the walls and halls of this three-storey structure--the top floor houses an intricate seven-tiered wooden model of the universe that took his creator, Dungzin Rimpoche, five years to complete.

  • Very old monetary. Beautiful place. That view of Kanchenjunga is lovely
  • One of the oldest monetary. Lovely place
  • Went on mid August , which is off season. It was calm and peaceful. I was the only visitor. Weather was perfect and the serenity divine. If you are walking from Pelling, it is a steep climb up the monastery from the road.
  • Great place. But not try to reach by walk.😊
  • A very peaceful place full of monks.
