It is here that an important monastery belonging to the Nyingmapa order is built by Ngadak Sempa Chembo in 1717. According to Buddhist scriptures, Guru Padma Sambhava (Guru Rimpoche) blessed the sacred land of Sikkim in the 8th century AD from this spot. All around the monastery lies skillfully carved holy Chortens known as 'Thong-Wa-Rang-Dol' which literally means 'Saviors by mere sight'.
