Nothing great if you have been to other monestaries ! Can be avoided if you are short of time ! Although the dome is good but nothing more that that !

Excellent Japanese temple. It is old and peaceful temple and there are also schools for the students. The temple is covered by large and old trees. Very near to Ghoom Station.

Not a lot to do here, but that's the point - it's a MONASTERY! My advice is just to come here, go inside the main building and take in a bit of religious culture, before sampling the marvelous mountain views of the area. Always peaceful and tranquil.

The tourists who go to Tiger Hill also go to Ghoom Monastery. But like other Monastery, this place is not so clean and not much attractive.
