Tsuk La Khang Monastery, popularly known amongst the locals as palace Monastery, is located close to the flower exhibition centre. The Monastery is not opened to the tourists for now and I had to contend with looking it from the outside gate.

A wonderful Monastery located within the Palace Grounds. Numerous Beautiful Thankas adorn the Walls . Heard and saw Children memorizing their prayers and playing in the lovely Grounds . The Monastery is home to numerous Religious Scriptures which are taken out in a procession during Buddha Poornima in Gangtok . Was Lucky to view the same.
