Sikkim Heritage Tour
The monasteries of Sikkim are places of religious discourses, worship and meditation and are the store-house of many hands written religious books and manuscripts preaching morals. Monasteries constitute the part and parcel of Sikkimese cultural heritage. In general, the monasteries are called Gompa, which means a solitary place.

In Sikkim there are near about 200 monasteries or Gompas belonging to the Kagyu and Nyingma order have not only been influencing the cultural heritage and lifestyle of the people, but also demonstrates the ancient rituals in practice. Devoted Lamas robed in red, chant ancient mantras (like "Om Mani Padmani Om") to the rhythm of drums and trumpets while soft lights flicker from decorative lamps placed before statues of the great Guru Padmasambhava. Feel the peace and quiet of being one with nature and close to the almighty as sacred words mingle with the whirring prayer wheels.
