Namgyal Institute of Tibetology
A lot of Tibetans have made Sikkim their home. I think I encountered more Tibetan refugees than locals here. And, therefore you can find traces of the Tibetan culture here. If say all of it is accumulated in one place, it is here the Institute of Tibetology. The main attraction is of course the museum, that explains the history and the practice of Tibetan Buddhism perfectly to someone who knows nothing about it.
