Tawang Monastery

The Monastery is one of the oldest, in India, and has its own version to say. The museum it self is worth visiting.

It is a peaceful place and there is a museum which has the remains and pictures of the previous time. This place gives a beautiful view of the whole town. Visited in April though it was cold and rainy too.

We visited Tawang monastery in early June 2015; the road leading to the monastery is a beautiful walk. The Monastery itself is awe inspiring, though less in grandeur compared to the Monastery in Leh.

This is one of the largest monastery in India. Tawang looks very beautiful from here. Very good museum inside and don't forget to visit one more monastery specially for ladies where only families are allowed to visit

A little above Tawang Town gives a nice view of the Town. When we visited the monastery their prayer was going on. Still we were allowed to enter the prayer hall witness their rituals and also to take photos of the famous golden Buddha and all. We made friends with some little monks. Museum is a must see.
