It was one of the listed sight seeing venue but not much to see as it was quite crowded and the place also seemed to be small.

This point is covered under Drajeeling local sightseen package. You can experience the Buddhist devotion there. It is good place to have Tea & snacks there in morning. So don't miss it. However Washrooms doesn't have water when we visited there.

Ghoom monastery is a very peaceful place. It's better to go in the morning, you can join the local people when they are worship of mahatma Buddha. We enjoyed a lot.
