  • The temple is very careful to organize the environment, the temple said that when the housekeeper as long as the visit to each country will bring back the seed, so full of flowers in the temple, temples and 蔣 contribution Kanchurenpoche Stupa, very worthwhile to visit

  • I have visited many times since 1995 and Pullahari there is "satisfaction guaranteed" for all the efforts you have to expose themselves in order to come up to the monastery. Even I prefer to stroll from Bouddha (it takes about 1 hour), but you can also hire a taxi from Bouddha-it costs about 400 Rupee one way or 600-800 rupees for the trip. Pullahari Monastery is the seat of Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche and about 180 monks. The site's "daily leader"-Khenpo Chokey Gyaltsen is not just very clever and erudite monk but also art connoisseur, gardener and environmentalist. You need to see the unique paintings in the Temple in the main building, Temple with Jamgon Kongtrul stupa with relics of the Third, enjoy great garden and the numerous stupas in the area. There is a small bar in the parking lot, where you can get a bit to eat and drink. I can really recommend to besød ¨ ge this amazing place!

  • I had the chance to visit this beautiful Buddhist monastery with my girlfriend and my son, accompanied and guided by the monk Kempo Chokey. When we arrived in the Kathmandu Valley heights and when we returned in this magnificent property, I felt first of all completely soothed, amazed, filled with gratitude and joy. The beauty of the architecture and paintings, the serene and joyful atmosphere that reigns in this place, the meeting small monks in training, discussions with the inhabitants of this place have been a special moment in my trip that I wouldn't miss for anything in the world. Next time I go back to Nepal, I shall not stay to a spiritual retreat. You will be pleasantly disoriented! Good trip!!
