This Lhakang was the most quiet and special temple we visited. Serene and well kept. The magnificent magnolias and wisterias added to its silent beauty.

This temple is very old and has deep connection with introduction of Buddha dharma in the Himalayas. It has deep historical recall of Tibetan king, the re-incarnation of Manjusheri, built 108 temples within one day with miraculous power.

This is a small, old, but beautiful monastery. Not worth going out of your way for but definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
