About Pemayangtse Gompa, Pelling

Sikkim is replete with monasteries that exhibit Buddhist faith and its culture. Pemayangtse monastery is one of the oldest monasteries of Sikkim that was constructed in the 17th century by Lama Lhatsun Chempo. Although quite humble when it was constructed, this monastery was subsequently renovated to grand proportions by Jigme Pawo, the third re-embodiment of Lhatsun Chempo. The name of the monastery can be literally translated as “Perfect Sublime Lotus” signifying the sublimate Buddhist faith and religion. Nestled in the beauty of nature, this monastery is set on a hilltop (2100m) overlooking the Rabdentse ruins. There are two floors of this monastery that exhibit:

  • The ground floor features a central Buddha, while upstairs fierce-looking statues depict all eight reincarnations of Padmasambhava.
  • On the top floor is an astounding seven-tiered model representing Padmasambhava’s heavenly abode of Zangtok Palri, handmade over five laborious years by a single dedicated lama.

Pemayangtse monastery is situated just 1.5km from Upper Pelling, along the road to Geyzing. You can easily combine its visit with that Rabdentse ruins.
