Beautiful location as all Budha monasteries. The members were so cooperative and kind to speak to us. I think they are lucky because they are living such a beautiful place.

This monastery being the second largest in Asia, is very impressive. The place is visible from a distance. It is preferable to visit early in the morning to enjoy the serene atmosphere.

It is the 2nd largest monastery in Asia. Very nice and cosy. The location and scenary is just awesome. You can enter the main prayer hall. FOr the museum u have to pay 20 bucks per person. For photography (still and videos) u have to pay. But it is worth spending. You will really enjoy the charm

Very nice and a pious place. The silence enamours you here, and the Buddha statue (golden status of 28 ft) is awesome! The museum is attractive too.

Beautiful location and the Budha statue I liked... Similar to other religions, the children get brainwashed which I did not like.

Beautiful colorful picturesque monastery over looking the sleepy town of Tawang . The lamas of different age groups are very friendly and greet you with a smile . You are allowed to open the doors of the main monastery and enter yourself with no one there to supervise your presence . Also the monastery museum houses the tanguar and kanguar... More
