Large Monastery and one can see monks living there, young ones running around and enjoying. It has a good museum at reasonable ticket price.

It covers a large stretch of land in tawang with white buildings and golden roof which is very distinct and can be seen from whole of the tawang.

A calm and peaceful place. Try and visit during the hours of prayer. It is twice a day- around 0730 in morning and around 1500 after lunch. Ask around for exact timings. It keeps changing. There is a lamp hall on the second floor on...More

If you are on tawang trip, This one should be in your must visit. 2nd largest called monastery. Very peaceful, though it is newly created and I missed old/ ancient monasteries ambiance what I found in other part of country.

The Tawang Monastrey is oldest monastreys and is one of the major attractions of Tawang. The serenity that this place offers is incomparable. I would recommend to sit and have a me time inside the temple.

Anyone has more information about online application of Inner Line Permit for Tawang. There is requirement of 'contact details of local Arunachal Pradesh person' in order to obtain online permit. I am not sure how can you know someone there when you are going there for first time. Also in case i need to get the permit on the go in Guwahati, can someone tell how much time does it take? Thanks in advance.
