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.

  • Great place for visit. I recommend everyone to visit this place once. Get a great view of Kanchenzongha from here. This is a upscale place. Need to visit here by walk little bit. However great 360 degree view. Very calm monastery. It is possible to visit by car. Very old monastery.
  • One of the oldest monasteries in west Sikkim. You can also see the rabdantse ruins in the distance. Huge prayer wheel at the entrance it's another attraction. The monastery itself has practicing monks and beautiful preserved and reconstructed artifacts from early 19th century.
  • Nice place, most probably it is the 4th largest monastery in India. Lost of collection Buddhist culture available here.
  • Very old monetary. Beautiful place. That view of Kanchenjunga is lovely
