Amir Khan shot one of his Satyamev Vijayta episode at this Monastery. Its a nice monastery and I liked it better than Rumtek Monastery. Here you can see how monks are taught the books and the place is very peaceful.
Very Peaceful. Complete spiritual experience. The surrounding is extremely beautiful and breath taking. The statue of Buddha and the inside of the monastery is serene. Neat and Clean. Beautifully maintained. A must visit for those visiting Gangtok.
It is located in backdrop of mountain,One of the most important monastery of Karmapa sect.if you want to really have a feel of Tibetan culture you should see this.It is typical monastery with Lamas roaming around taking lessons in classes and playing around
