Bokar Monastery-A Place for Teachings of Buddha

#Monastery in Mirik

Bokar Monastery is the most favourite place in Mirik after the Mirik Lake. Located in the Darjeeling hills, Bokar Ngedon Chokhor Ling is a thriving monastic centre in Mirik with nearly five hundred monks. The monks are fully devoted to studying, practising and sustaining the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha. The monastery was founded as a small retreat centre but over the time it has evolved into two retreat centres, monastic college, and a Shedra.

The place is located at the highest peak of Mirik. The view from this peak point is wonderful and delight to eyes. The monastery is an epitome of Chinese architecture and has sprawling lawns to sit and observe the place. It is a few minutes’ walk from the Mirik lake. The monastery takes pride in being one of the most important monasteries for Buddhists in India and also one of few in India that has retained its traditional beliefs.
