Pemayangtse Monastery is on a hilltop overlooking the Rebdentse Ruins. Built on the highest hill in the areas, the monastery is the second oldest in Sikkim.
The monastery has beautiful sculptures, paintings and ancient scrolls along with the notable statue of Padmasambhava’s eight incarnations with the seven-layered wooden structure depicting the heavenly abode of Guru Rimpoche.
The main prayer hall of the monastery is a huge room. Pemayangtse is literally translated as ‘perfect sublime lotus’. Viewed from the Rebdantse Ruins, the monastery opens up to heaven like a gateway.
