“A beautiful and colourful Monastery with a huge golden statue of Buddha”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This Monastery is very close to the mall Road and is just behind the paid car parking complex. if you walk just less that 50 meters from the mall road, you can reach the place. The monastery is being maintained very well and the whole structure looks beautiful and colourful. The premises is surrounded by a garden with beautiful flowers in it. You are permitted to take the Photograph of Buddha statue inside the premises on purchase of a Ticket for Rs.20/- the proceeds of which goes for the accounts of painting the statue, as printed on the ticket.

“Must visit if you are near Mall Road, Manali”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Located in front of Van Vihar National Park near Mall Road, Manali. It is not a huge monastery like we expected it to be. Its rather a small one but has its own charm. Less crowded and you can wander around. Best if you visit the place in the evening. Few shops are at the entrance where you can buy Tibetan stuffs at a reasonable price, if you can bargain.

“Oasis of Peace”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

As Buddhist monasteries go, it isn't the grandest or most awe-inspiring of structures. But once inside the pagoda-like shrine, you forget the hustle & bustle of Manali town. The mere sight of the majestic golden idol of the Buddha (whose tranquil face you can view better & in close-up from the upper floor) is an instant stress-buster. The serene wall carvings & paintings, the symbolic religious artifacts, the monks deep in meditation and the series of rotating prayer wheels on the outside all infuse a feeling of mystical peace far from the madding crowds.
