The entire Gangtok will give you a calm serene feeling due to their pollution free environment but this monastery goes way above that. The view from the place is mesmerising as it is in between the hills and greenery. We reached around noon when the...More

This monastery is few steps away from tashi view point and I think you may come across better monasteries but the view of the city and mountains is great.

Gonjang Monastery is located 8kms from Gangtok and can be covered under the sightseeing tour. It's a beautiful monastery and has a large open space from where one can take good photographs of the monastery and the valley.... A must visit place in Gangtok....

We were lucky enough to be at this beautiful monastery on the celebration of the builders birthday. Set in front of the mountains with the mist spiralling, the celebrations involved all the monks young & old, made for a really spiritual experience.

It's beautiful small monastery within the city limits and one can get the taste of Buddhists' customs. The statues are beautiful, well decorated and cleanliness is superb.

The Buddha statues and the paintings are glorious. Detailed and intricate. The 'prasad' after the prayer is (uniquely) packets of biscuits! Lots of monks live there - we got some charming pictures of young monks waiting for the hordes of tourists to leave!

Time bound and itinerary bound, we could not go to Rumtek Monastery as it lies further off the main city and would have taken 3-4 hours for us to drive till there. Hence, we compensated that with Gonjang Monastery, which is located 6km from the...More
