Ngadak Monastery - Review
Located in Namchi, this beautiful monastery was built during the reign of Chogyal Gyurmed Namgyal. According to the history, this monastery is said to be one of the oldest monasteries of Sikkim. The primary attraction of the monastery is a 135 feet tall statue of Guru Padmasambhava sitting on a lotus. This remarkable statue was placed on the top of Samdruptse hill. However, the original structure of the monastery was destroyed due to earthquake. The structure that you see today is supported by iron railings. Local says that this monastery is also called the center of tantra. You can make out from the paintings done on the walls of the monastery that depicts Dakini, with three eyes, wearing tantric jewelry and standing naked in a dancing posture.
Stroll in the surrounding areas of the monastery and you will come across many medicinal plants as well.
