There is a small monastery in Takdah whose actual name is Dechhen Pema Tshoiling Monastery locally known as Takdah Monastery belonging to Nyingma sect. An uphill road after the market area leads to a stairway leading to the Monastery. One needs to climb several flights of stairs to reach up to the Monastery just above the Saino Heritage Guesthouse.
The monastery was built in 1985 and Lama Karma Gyaltchen was in charge and head monk of the monastery until 2007. The panoramic views are awesome from the Monastery premises. Sweeping view of Rungli Rungliot Tea Gardens, Teesta Valley Tea Estate and Durpin Dara View Point and Kalimpong can make anyone’s day.
