Gonjang Monastery: Time-bound and itinerary bound, we could not go to Rumtek Monastery as it lies further off the main city and would have taken 3-4 hours for us to drive till there. Hence, we compensated that with Gonjang Monastery, which is located 6km from the main city. Festooned with multi-coloured flags, this monastery is beautiful. The monks stay here and study. There are no specific visiting hours. The main temple has enormous wall art that is drawn to detail. Photography inside the main temple is not allowed. On the rear side of the monastery are numerous prayer wheels. There is no entry ticket. However, a parking of 20 INR has to be paid.
