“Just a spot”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Oldest in Darjeeling, but nothing spectacular, barring the religious value. It come on return path from Tiger Hill so it is good to visit early morning and have some moments of peace and prayer in the monastry.

“Glum little gompa”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Dour monks demanding donations did not fit my pictures of a spiritual home in the mountains. This was a depressing place, run-down, with unhappy monks scurrying around to open the doors and express disapproval at the donation we offered, which was more than the sign suggested. Unpleasant.

“I was mesmerized...”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

What was the best part of the visit? the color, the chanting, the drums, the prayer bells, the overall ambience, the trip down the steep hill to the very primitive loo? I loved it all
