This was our first port of all on our first day in Darjeeling and we enjoyed it. Very interesting and once again lots of fascinating facts about Buddha - very peaceful.

We were there during Monsoons, and as soon as we arrived up the stairs it started pouring down with a thick fog. It was beautiful. The monks were chanting, the paintings were bright. The fog gave an extra aura to the prayers. It's an easy stop on your way to Darjeeling.

The environment here is very tranquil. When you are sitting in front of a large Buddha statue and monks are chanting mantra around you, you go into a complete different kind of a trance. I'll highly recommend this experience to everyone. Not to forget the small coffee shop next to it which serves great coffee.

Big idols is the attraction here. Apart from this, nothing special here. But it falls on the way back to Darjeeling from Tiger hills, so can be visited.

It is nicely located and well maintained. You'll find the many monasteries in the region but Ghoom monastery has its own place.

When we visited Ghoom Monastery, we felt like we were in a temple. More than 200 monks offered their prayers by sitting in front of Lord Buddha.
