Rumtek Monastery

Timings: 9 A.M. - 6 P.M.
The most famous Monastery of Sikkim is around 24 kms from Gangtok, the capital of the State. Colloquially known as the Rumtek Dharma Chakra, it is the seat of the Kagyu order one of the major Tibetan Buddhist sects. It was constructed by His Holiness, the late 16th Gyalwa Karmapa in 1960 and is believed to be a replica of the original Kagyurpa Monastery in Tsurphu, Tibet. The Monastery houses some of the world's most unique religious scriptures, manuscripts and religious art objects. At fifteen minutes walking distance is the old Rumtek monastery which was originally built in 1730 by the ninth Karmapa but was destroyed by fire and had to be reconstructed to the present state. Another attraction of this Monastery is the Tsechu dance that is organized in the month of June every year.
