Pemayangtse Monastery, Sikkim

4.5
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.

  • It's one of the old monastery in west Sikkim, have little entry fee, it's maintain too good... anybody can enter including upper floors and observe the story with take time but no photography allowed inside. Recommended for visit with respect and definitely you will get more return. People are very helpful, you may enrich your knowledge by conversation with them... and last but not least yes, you may reach near Monastery gate by car directly if you not willing to walk.
  • A place that depicts the Time Travel of Buddhism from early seventeen century to Now... PHOTOGRAPHY IS PROHIBITED INSIDE THE MONASTERY...so you are left to just witness the Buddhism Love and Devotion towards lord...Peace here is a gift from God...You can sit back and pray to God for all the wishes...And Lord grant you with all you desires..Very near to Rabdentse Ruins...If you visit here then You should visit that too...
  • A peaceful place which walks you through the history and culture of Buddhism. Lots of old manuscripts are preserved here.
  • A wonderful and historical Monastery worth visiting at any circumstances. The wooden work and the old manuscripts are really awesome to see.
  • It is one of a kind historical monument. With alot kind of traditional and historical thing. Full of sculptures,books,costume etc Really need to visit once.
