about tashi jong monastery

Tashi Jong in Tibetan means 'Auspicious Valley'. The monastery encompasses a small stratum of the Tibetan refugees and is frequented by the peace seekers and Buddhist pilgrims all the year around. It is more like a community than a monastery and has been built recently. 

The artistic excellence of the temple can be derived from the beautiful look alike stupa, a Buddhist spiritual monument, placed in the monastery along with a wide variety of Tibetan artifacts, paintings and other magnificent articles. The roof of the monastery is curved, mounted with red-golden coloured ornamentation which looks like prayer flags. The walls are adorned with paintings, representing the different facets of Tibetan art and culture. Apart from this, there is also a restaurant and a craft emporium in the region which attract many visitors.

With some luck, you might be able to watch monks working at thangka paintings at this monastery. This is one of the most gorgeous ones at Palampur.

If paragliding is high on your mind, the lane right outside this monastery is home to many sports agencies that offer on the spot reservation for paragliding spots at Bir and Billing and 360!
