Pemayangtse Gompa - Review
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.

A VERY WELL MAINTAINED MONASTERY AND VERY COLORFUL. PHOTOGRAPHY INSIDE THE MONASTERY IS PROHIBITED. A NICE PLACE TO VISIT WITH YOUR FAMILY.
The Pemayangtse Monastery is a Buddhist monastery in Pemayangtse, near Pelling in the state of Sikkim. It is one of the oldest and premier monasteries of Sikkim, also the most famous in west Sikkim. Very nice, beutifull and peaceful place.
It's one of the old monastery in west Sikkim, have little entry fee, it's maintain too good... anybody can enter including upper floors and observe the story with take time but no photography allowed inside. Recommended for visit with respect and definitely you will get more return. People are very helpful, you may enrich your knowledge by conversation with them... and last but not least yes, you may reach near Monastery gate by car directly if you not willing to walk.
A place that depicts the Time Travel of Buddhism from early seventeen century to Now... PHOTOGRAPHY IS PROHIBITED INSIDE THE MONASTERY...so you are left to just witness the Buddhism Love and Devotion towards lord...Peace here is a gift from God...You can sit back and pray to God for all the wishes...And Lord grant you with all you desires..Very near to Rabdentse Ruins...If you visit here then You should visit that too...
A peaceful place which walks you through the history and culture of Buddhism. Lots of old manuscripts are preserved here.
