The Lava monastery is a nice place to visit for its serene and silent atmosphere and the majestic structures / designs. I saw some young monks playing a football game. The view of the beautiful Lava town is visible from the top of the monastery.

This monastery in Lava is a nice calm place & a religious place to find peace amidst the beauty of nature. Surrounded by greenery & hills all around the monastery sits pretty at one edge of the town. Sit in pure tranquility in the monastery courtyard, enjoy the peaceful place & watch the swallows flying by.
