The place was a modest yet beautiful monastery, with a huge Buddha statue inside. A very colorful interiors, with a small souvenir counter at the entrance. There is a small store outside that sells some snacks and tea. It was difficult for us as it was raining the whole time we were in Darjeeling. So that kind of ruined the... More

The 4WD maybe small, but the streets of Ghum seem smaller still! We wound our way along lanes barely a car-width to be confronted with a car coming the other way. Once we arrived at the Monastery, it all seemed a bit of a let-down! This is the same as other monasteries we have visited this trip, nothing special!

It is on the way to tiger hill so generally people who go to tiger hill stop on their return and view the monastery. It is a small monastery but quite a nice one. It is nice to visit and enjoy some of the Buddhist spots in the region.
