This was a nice, small monastery close to Ghoom. It is not as big as those in Ladakh, but worth checking our if you are in the area.

If you have visited many monasteries, you could skip this one. But if you like quite places, this monastery was a good one. I could grab a lot of gifts from the vendors outside at good rates.

It's a nice walk up the monastery, you get some good views and the art/paintings on the walls are beautiful. Photos can be viewed here: http://leventnousportera.be/2014/03/hibernating-in-darjeeling/

You will be given an opportunity to experience Buddhist culture. The chanting and worship by monks make the experience very thrilled.

Must go! Really old monastery and well kept! Do buy the Tibetan chants cd from here as it is too too good! You could avoid the sales women outside though.They are leeches at times!But if you wanna buy something,bargain slashing to half the price!
