'Famous as the largest monastery in India and the second largest in the world, the Tawang Monastery controls seventeen gompas in the entire region. The monastery is also known as the Galden Namgey Lhatse, which translates to ‘celestial paradise in a clear night’, that aptly describes the beauty of this place.

Apart from its amazing architectural and artistic structures and exquisite murals, the biggest attraction of this place is the 18-foot-high statue of Buddha Shakyamuni. This 17th century monastery was founded by Merak Lama Lodre Gyatso at the behest of Ngawang Lobsang Gyatso, the 5th Dalai Lama.

Historical Context: Twang Monastery was founded in the year 1680-81,it is situated about 10,000 feet above sea leval
