Karbandi Monastery, or as locals call it, Karbandi Goempa, at a height of 400 metres, was founded in the year 1967 by the royal grandmother Ashi Phuntsho Choedron, who has had a winter residence here. The temple compound of Karbandi Monastery houses impressive, large statues of Shabdrung Ngawang, Guru Rinpoche, and Shakyamuni Buddha.

The plush garden located right outside the monastery gives a panoramic view of the Bengal plains and the Phuentsholing town. Eight different Tibetan Buddhist stupas can be seen enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the garden. According to legend, an Indian pilgrim couple visited this place and prayed for a child. The wish was granted, and since then, couples have been visiting this place in hopes of a better future.

It is situated near to the Phuentsholing India Bhutan border at a little upper to the town. This place is beautiful with the Bhutanese traditional flag all over the place. The monastery area is very peaceful.

Karbandi monastery can be visited throughout the year but morning time from 7am to 9am when the distant sound of monk chanting the prayer with the alluring aroma of incense feel the surrounding is considered the best time to visit Karbandi Monastery..
