It has various levels taking you through prayer areas, meditation spaces and lots of open space to just sit and reflect. It's better to ask for the services of a guide, so that he can tell you in greater... More

Beautiful views and a working monastery. The temple is small but very ornate with wonderful paintings on the wall. You can also turn all the prayer wheels.

I visited the Temple on three separate occasions during my stay and I loved every moment.

We had been to the place with a wish that we meet the great Dalai Lama but unfortunately he was unwell and could not meet people, but the temple complex was awesomely serene and it was a wonderful jaunt with peace!!
