Tashiding Monastery, Yuksam

4.6
According to legend, the site for Tashiding Monastery was chosen by a guru, who shot an arrow from his bow and decided that the building would be constructed on the spot where it landed. Sitting at an altitude of 1,465 m (4,806 ft), the hilltop monastery offers memorable views over the surrounding mountainous landscape. Embark on the 40-minute uphill walk to reach the monastery, where you can appreciate its humble but attractive architecture.

  • Monastery truly blessed by Guru Padmasambhava (Guru Rempochee) and the cave where he had done long-life medidation ! #Tashiding #Sikkim #Darjeelicious
  • One of the holiest Monastery of Sikkim. Needs a small climb. Serene.
  • One of the most inspiring buddhist places I have been to. Very peaceful, beautiful stupas, nature and gompa. Don't expect anything too grandiose though. It's simplicity is what makes it a fantastic pilgrimage site.
  • The great Buddhist temple of western Sikkim
  • A very peaceful place, looks a bit run-down.
