About Tongsa Gumba, Kalimpong

Hailed as the oldest Bhutanese Monastery in the area, it was built in the 16th century. The old monastery was destroyed and a new building was constructed in its place. Tourists are allowed to attend the prayer services that are carried out by the monks. Usually the monasteries have 108 drums, but this one has 219 drums, which is highly unusual. The top floor has new colorful fresco paintings but the ground floor ones are fading away. This place offers a very peaceful environment for prayers and meditation, wherein the monks offer their prayers everyday.
