Shashur Gompa in Keylong

At a mere distance of 3 km from Keylong in the Lahaul valley is yet another worth visiting monastery of Himachal Pradesh, Shashur Gompa. The monastery is associated with the red hat sect of Tibetan Buddhism or Gelukpa order and have spiritual connection with the Lion Cave Temple of Bhutan.

As you make your way to the monastery through difficult tract, chortens and a beautiful mani wall (piles of prayer stones) will catch your attention. Inscribed on these stones is the extremely sacred Buddhist ritual mantra or invocation - OM MANI PADME HUM - The Jewel in the Heart of the Lotus.
