Old monastery

Very old Gompa(monastery). The monastery is not too big,but adding up in your sightseeing spots would be a good choice.

Dedicated to Buddha, there are a lot of idols and carvings of Buddha kept in the gompa. Absolute serene and peaceful place.

We decided to walk from the Chowrasta to Bhutia Busty Monastery. Being hilly terrain, it wasnt easy but we enjoyed the walk around the tiny hamlets . This monastery is beautiful. It was locked but they opened it for us. Buddhist monasteries are very peaceful. It resembled the monasteries of Bhutan with lovely paintings. The prayer flags on the way,... More

Very beautiful temple that points the way to the true gem of Darjeeling, namely the Tibetan refugee craft centre. There you can see (and buy) all types of textile crafts hand made and from vegetable dyed yarns. Truly impressive.

It is a nice little Gompa located near Bhutia Basti or Bhutanese Colony. The road to the gompa is very steep but once you are up there, you get a meditating view of the valley. It is so serene and peaceful to look at the resting valleys downhill. There are lovely paintings in the Gopma which deserves a close look.

It is worth strolling down the hill to this Monastery in Darjeeling. At first it was locked when we arrived, but the monks were very happy to open it for us. It is a beautiful, peaceful place to meditate.

The Monastery is poorly signposted and a long way downhill from the town with no warning about closing times. Its fairly small. Looked interesting but we couldn't tell as it was locked up and there was no-one around

Old gompa--- worth visiting for the paintings and history. A short walk from the mall/square and easy to get to.

Nothing much to write, but as a tourist, you must visit few of the many monasteries in and around Darjeeling. They have their own spirituality.

May 7-9, 2013 This is a point shown on way back from Tiger Hill. A small monastery and nothing very interesting there. I have read other people's comments, who enjoyed the walk till there, which we did not do. So, if you are visiting by car, then it is just a 10 minutes stop to quickly see the place. Not... More
