CHEMREY (OR THEKCHOK) MONASTERY
Petit Futé's opinion on CHEMREY (OR THEKCHOK) MONASTERY
This monastery dates back to the early th century. In the midst of sumptuous rocky landscapes, it is majestically on a hill. The monks are about 300 on site, and, happy to welcome the (rare) visitors of passage, you will open the doors of the lakhang (sanctuaries) and, if their English level allows them, answer your questions. Do not miss the blue frescoes illustrating the protective deities and those with the thousand Buddhas. The more height is found the llama-lakhang, and two empaillées goats suspended on the right of the entrance. A small museum contains ancient objects, thangkas and photographs of the history of shakyamuni.
