The stunning hillside retreat of Gangtok in the tiny but enchanting mountain state of Sikkim is home to a few significant monasteries. Enchey Monastery is located beautifully in the upper reaches of Gangtok and affords some impressive sweeping views. Built over a century ago, the monastery exudes a serene atmosphere and is home to a selection of important religious artefacts like murals, masks and paintings. The architecture of the monastery includes some finely detailed and intricately carved work. Each year, a colourful religious masked dance called “Chaam” is performed here. So, make sure to plan a trip to Gangtok and include Enchey Monastery in your list of places to visit!
