Ralong Monastery

#Monastery in Ravangla

Ralong Monastery in Sikkim is home to about 100 monks belonging to the Kagyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism. It underwent renovation from 1975-1981, since when the monastery is developed into a marvel of Tibetan architecture, whose entire aura is sure to give your vacation a more spiritual touch, where you can meditate, and connect with your inner self.


The monastery hosts an array of annual festivals, like Pang Lhabsol (taking place somewhere between September to early December), Chaam Dance (taking place somewhere between August to September), and Mahakala (taking place in November), which are highly recommended for travelers who are Buddhist enthusiasts. The monastery is also home to a vast selection of paintings and thangkas (which are Tibetan Buddhist painting on a fabric, mainly silk or cotton), which are one of the finest specimen of Tibetan art in the region.
