Sikkim is known for its incredibly serene calm and the lovely monasteries engulfed in it. Rumtek Monastery in many ways epitomizes this calm and peace. The Monastery, also known as the Dharmachakra center, is a stunning place to see in Gangtok.

The Rumtek Monastery Buddha figurine, is certainly worth seeing. Set in a lovely golden hue he is a symbol of peace. The lovely colors in which the walls, the pillars and the exterior of the building have been decorated are very pretty. As you walk up to the monastery, the subtle grind of the prayer wheels sets the atmosphere.

It is a monastery and hence a place where these monks live and worship so one needs to be careful and respectful but if you want to observe this part of Gangtok’s culture, the place is a definite must visit.
