This place has got a historical significance. It's a well maintained Buddhist monastery. You would also enjoy the place around while coming here. We were here only for few minutes. But we liked this place. You could come to this place. Quite Good in my opinion.

If you're lucky enough the Dalai Lama will be here at... More
