This 400 year old monastery is the largest in India and the second largest in Asia. An important place for the Mahayana sect of Buddhism, this monastery is the chief tourist attraction in Tawang. Also known as the Galden Namgyal Lhatse, it is situated at a height of 3500 m. The complex is huge with around 65 building inside, one of which is an amazing library containing old manuscripts. There are around 450 lamas and 700 monks living here currently. This is the single Buddhist structure of such size and magnificence in the country. This monastery is also a center for social and cultural events of Tawang. All in all it forms an essential part of life in the Tawang valley and its beauty and serenity can be compared with very few structures.

Jaswantgarh War Memorial

Embedding the war torn history of this place, this memorial is dedicated to Jaswant Singh Rawat, the local hero. There are quite a few legends around how he fought and how he died. He is said to have singlehandedly fought the Chinese soldiers for 72 hours in the Indo-China war. Some say he hanged himself after the Chinese finally closed on him while some claim that the Chinese caught and killed him. Immaterial of what is true and what is not, he is revered and even worshiped in one sense by the Indian soldiers posted here as well as the locals. There is a bust of him that is garlanded and the memorial is filled with people paying their respect to Jaswant Singh's heroism. A journey to Tawang is incomplete without this piece of history.

About Tawang

Tawang has always been in the midst of conflict and controversy. But if you look beyond the controversy, you'll discover beauty incomparable to any other. Tawang is well connected from Tezpur by air and rail and summer is the best time to visit and plan a holiday. The major tourist attraction here is the Twang Monastery, which is celebrated as the birth place of the 6th Dala Lama. Besides the monastery, the Sela Pass and Jang Waterfalls are also touristy places and should definitely be a part of your itinerary. The Penga Teng Tso Lake is frozen for 5 months in a year, but makes for a wonderful sight all through. Do book a cab to visit the lake since the roads are a little tricky and are best managed by a local. Tawang is especially colourful in February when the Monpas, the native tribe, celebrate the Losar Festival (Tibetan New Year) and it really is a great time to be here. For foreign nationals, special permission is required to visit Tawang so do have all your papers in order. Before planning a holiday to Tawang, it's wise to research and also build contacts with the locals there to discover all the wonderful secrets of this splendid district!
