Was fortunate enough to be guided by an ex Monk Daichand ( a friend of my uncle Anji Mehra) who we met after nearly 24 years. The paintings and scriptures are to die for. The writing on the parchment paper has been kept intact in immaculate condition, but the walls that were recently plastered are showing signs of water seepage and I am afraid will continue to detoriate if nothing is done to prevent it. Unfortunately the govt is handling this and I dont think theres much hope. The monks and volunteers however, are trying their best. The aura and atmosphere within is electrifying (in the absence of electricity inside) - theres only natural light and the numerous Devi's and Devta's glare at you from their high perched pedestals. Photography isnt allowed inside. See the attached photos of the exterior of the monastry. I highly recommend you use Daichand as your local guide as you will elarn hell of a lot about the monastry

Nice to see the mid structures here.... good if you are around. Place is dark inside, so carry torches or use cell lights.

This monastery (popularly known as Tabo monastery) dates back to 996 A.D and is declared as a national historical treasure of India (by the ASI). It's a must visit place in Tabo. The Dalai Lama visited here a no. of times.Ancient architectural works and paintings of the lamas can be viewed here.
