About Tawang Monastery

Tawang Monastery or Tawang gompa is Asia's second largest monastery, and is an important seat of the Mahayana Buddhism. Indians or foreigners visiting Arunachal Pradesh need a government permit, easily available at all entry points to Arunachal Pradesh and also at Delhi and Kolkata. Situated on a hilltop, the monastery offers picturesque views of the Tawang town located on the foot of the hill. Visit the museum within the monastery, enjoy the murals on the walls and consider catching the glorious sunrise where the morning chants of the monks feel your soul with reverence.  a
