A must go place in Mirik. On top of hill, one gets best view of Mirik lake and town. When monks pray, it has a magical feel around and spiritually uplifting sensation.

The sight of the monastery is very nice.I think it is the largest monastery of Darjeeling.The beauty of the inside of the monastery is awesome. Everybody can go inside the prayers room.The art of the inside of the building is wonderful.

I found it quite ordinary, nothing to be excited about. I was the only tourist there. You have to walk uphill for sometime in order to reach it, which is tiring.

Visited Mirik Monastery on invitation of a monk friend who showed me around and attended the morning prayer session of Buddh Purnima, which was a very soul satisfying experience.

Once you have visited one monastery in the hills....all others fall into the same pattern. This was a small well built structure.

There is an explicit emphasis on the environment. The place also offers silent retreats (if I understood this pcorrectly). In sum another quiet place for meditation or simply contemplation.
