Zang Dhok Palri Monastery is atop a hill and gives fantastic all round view of the scenery. This three storied Monastery has Dharma Chakras ( Prayer Wheels ) on all floors. The Temple is adorned by many deities in colorful costumes and walls are full of Tibetan motifs.

The monastery is open to tourists and photography is permitted. The monks are friendly and welcoming and gave us sweets. At the time we visited, the beautiful wall frescoes were being restored and repainted, which was interesting in itself.

We went to visit this place to hear the monks chanting in the mid afternoon which was quite a different experience but the atmosphere was somewhat influenced by the bad behaviour of the young monks who were hitting each other as well as using a mobile phone to watch something else.

We were residing at Morgan House. On a sunny chilly breezy Sunday morning, me and my wife decided to walk to the Gumpha. As gathered from Wikipedia, this Gumpha was consecrated by the Honourable Dalai Lama in 1976. The monastery holds in its reliquary 108 volumes of the Kangyur, as well as other holy books and scrolls that were moved... More
