“Place for devotees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you are a real devote, irrespective of your religion, you may opt to visit this Monastery.
Remember, unlike other Monasteries in Gangtok this one is not so well decorated or spacious but, you can feel the antiquity and originality.

“Far the best Tibetan monastery in Gangtok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Small but lively and full of charm monastery above Gangtok centre. I`ve got 3 excellent guides joining me on the road up. It is much smaller than Rumtek but I felt better there. The monks are always smiling and are very friendly. Was very impressive to be part of their service.
