  • One of the most beautiful monastery of Sikkim. I would love to visit again next time.
  • Tashiding is a small village on a hilltop near Pelling. The Tashiding monastery belongs to the Nyingmapa order and is highly revered among the people of Sikkim. Build on the top of the hill and looming over the Rathong and Rangit river, the monastery can be seen from far and wide. It is believed that even a slight glimpse of the monastery can cleanse mortals of all sins. The monastery was built during the 17th Century. There are a large number of oranges orchards and cardamoms plantations around Tashiding which can be visited from here. Inside the monastery, a pot of holy water is kept sealed only to be revealed and its droplets given to devotees once every year at the Bumchu Festival during the 14th and 15th day of the first month of the Tibetan calendar.
  • Cam and quite atmosphere. One can heal himself here.
  • I am a Buddhist and I like it it's beautiful be
  • Good meditation, beautiful, but dark paintings inside, nice area to walk around and several hidden treasures.
