This monastery is about 800 years old. There is a story about the monastery that centuries ago, monks wanted to shift this monastery to Hikkim but the statue of Mahakal refused to leave the ground. Despite several efforts, the statue couldn’t be moved. Even during the 1975 earthquake, the monastery had a good share of damage but the statue remained still. The statue is inside a prayer hall where women are not allowed to enter. There were three monks inside the prayer hall when I entered. They started the prayer in some time. That short time inside was most peaceful during my entire journey but then I remembered my friends were waiting outside.
To the left of the restaurant lies the Komic Gompa.
