Our taxi took us here for a sightseeing and we found the place to be very peaceful with such a beautiful monastery. The architecture of the Pedong Monastery is really appreciable. The interior decoration was superb.

Pedong Monastery, located at a distance of 20 km east of Kalimpong, is a monastery of Buddhist origin. Built by Bhutan's king in 1837, this monastery is located only a kilometre away from the historical Bhutanese fort of Damsang. This fort was an important landmark of the entire area before the town of Kalimpong came into existence. A large number of old paintings are displayed in this monastery.
