The campus is as peaceful as the nature as it sits onto the lap of the tranquility. The inside of the main Monastery is not allowed for photography. When it is not time for prayers, visitors are allowed inside. The whole Monastery has exquisite paintings and stories painted all over.

Child-Monks live in this campus and are seen playing joyfully there. Their chuckles and giggles fill the entire campus with a happy vibe amodst the silence of prayers.

Here are a few snaps of the beautiful place:
