about zang dhok palri phodang

Escape the madness of your busy schedules and lose yourself in the sheer pristine and calm beauty of Zang Dhok Palri Phodang. One of the most famous monasteries of Kalimpong, this one is located on Durpin Dara Hill, overlooking the majestic Teesta river. Also known as the Lava Monastery, it was consecrated by the then Dalai Lama in 1976.

The monastery has special relevance for Tibetan followers of Buddhism since it houses nearly 108 of Kangyur, Tibetan scriptures that were brought in from Tibet after the failed revolution of 1959. With breathtaking views, spiritual nirvana comes with this package.
