“Brilliant monastery”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Since it was our first visit to a Buddhist monastery, we liked it beyond description. The entire town is visible form the monastery, as well a spectacular view of the mountains. Do spend a evening in the monastery, during the prayer. It will be a peaceful experience.

“Peaceful”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

The monastery is a very peaceful place. My experience was an average one. You can find similar monastery in most of the North East India hill stations. As Lava is a remote place, the monastery is adding a extra beauty in this place.
I find one thing is common for all the monasteries - peace & respect.
