An average monastery .. do not expect too much! You you are planning to go to Gangtok, you have beautiful and very large monasteries there.

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.

Located about 200 m from Ghoom railway station is a Peaceful place and nicely kept. The exterior and interior are nicely painted. The priests in the monastery are very nice.

We were lucky to reach at the time when monks were chanting the hums. The place is peaceful. Just sit there to feel the peace.

Peaceful Monastery. Visited it in the afternoon after the early morning crush of tourists and locals. Was able to enjoy the peaceful location. The internal paintings and statutes were impressive. Toilet was very very dirty though so do not use unless necessary.
