Rumtek Dharma Chakra Centre : 5 min walk from our Resort

About 45 minutes drive from Gangtok, 24 kms away, is the Rumtek Dharma Chakra Centre, the seat of the Kagyu order, one of the 4 major Tibetan Buddhist sects. Since the late 1960s, after the arrival of His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, the Centre houses some of the world’s most unique religious scriptures and religious rare objects. Traditional in design, it is almost a replica of the original Kagyurpa Monastery in Tsurphu, Tibet.

    I recently stayed at the teen taley, and was very impressed with it. The location is a nice walk into town, and the people were very friendly. Not only that, it was so peaceful.

    The little cabins were perfect for my own little retreat. Will stay there again soon and recommend others to as well.
