Paintings illustrating the ideology of Buddhism adorn the monastery.The Pagoda-style yellow roof is the highlight of the monastery.Apart from having an image of Buddha,the monastery also enlists the name of the people who were killed in the Tibetan occupation.

This place is small, but I was amused by the story told about this place by our driver. Gompa is covered by a huge Yellow roof, it was built by the Tibetan refugees .
