Enchey Monastery

Enchey Monastery finds its name among the most famous tourist places in Sikkim. It is located close to Gangtok and offers its tourists spirituality and peace.

The land on which the monastery is put up is believed to be blessed by respected tantric master Druptob Karpo. It is said that the master had flying powers; he flew from Maenam hill to this place and built a small hermitage. The three Gods worshipped in the monastery are Buddha, Loki Sharia, and Guru Padmasambhava.

Enchey Monastery in Sikkim is an essential seat of the Nyingmapa order of the Vajrayana school of Buddhism. Surrounded by tall pine trees, the iconic monastery is a two-storey building boasting shells regarded as auspicious Buddhist symbols and several murals representing the protective deity and wheel of law on the porch. The impressive monastery is home to around 90 monks.
