Inside the monastery, its beautiful (Going by the artwork and the figurines). This place resides in a solitary location and i found this place to be better than other monasteries. Though small, but appealing.

A beautiful Monastery with a lot of interesting features. The Stupa inside the monastery is specially interesting and has beautiful figures and paintings and offerings to the Buddha displayed. A very serene atmosphere is very noticeable.

Saw quite a few monasteries in Sikkim, but could make out that some are richer than others. Peacefull & Beautiful view of Gangtok city from here. You will get wonderful photos.

When I visited this monastery I was totally alone. I was able to walk around the entire monastery, even in the school. Nice experience to see the young Buddhist students at work

Quite bumpy road from gangtok but once you reach there its amazing. We were the only tourists with few locals at the time of our visit and it was serene and peaceful. There was no noise , no running around . Superb location
