#Monastery in Siliguri

One of the most sacred destinations for Buddhists, the revered Salugara Monastery is located 6 km from the heart of Siliguri. This monastery is also known as the Great International Tashi Gomang Stupa, its highlight being a 100 feet stupa that serves as a major landmark. It was founded by Kalu Rinpoche, the Tibetan Lama.

Always thronging with devotees throughout the year, the Salugara Monastery serves as a place of relaxation. The location of the monastery on the hilly terrain surrounded by verdant green forests provides peace of mind to everybody. This destination also serves as a great place to practice meditation. The stupa is believed to be sacred as it characterizes five relics of Buddhism. Devotees can always be seen praying to their God.
