Must visit place. Keep a day for it. Explore the whole Gompa at leisure. There are many places to shoot excellent photos around here. The souvenir shop has great collections of things to buy. The warm jackets I bought for kids are great.
A beautiful place to visit where you can realise the meaning of life. If you visit the monastery you must visit the museum.
