Tsering Jong Monastery is one of Bir’s popular monasteries and is located near the Bir Landing Site behind the Chowgan Tea Gardens.
If you are there, get ready to be blown away by the stunning Tibetan architecture and design.
As you enter the monastery, you’ll be welcomed by the calming prayers of over 100 monks residing in the residential complex. Trust us; their prayers have the power to make your worries disappear, and your heart full of warmth. And if you’re feeling peckish after your spiritual experience, don’t forget to check out the authentic Tibetan cafe.
But wait, it gets better! The monastery is situated among the mountains and comprises a massive park, where you can enjoy a peaceful stroll, surrounded by colorful prayer flags fluttering in the wind. Plus, if you’re lucky enough to catch a sunset, you’ll be rewarded with stunning views of the peaks and the paragliders landing.
And the best part? You can reach the monastery in just 2-3 minutes by car/taxi or take a leisurely 15-minute walk from the Bir Tibetan Colony.
Oh, and a pro tip from us: make sure to visit before 6:00 PM as the monastery closes by then. And while you’re there, don’t forget to say hi to the deity at the entrance, surrounded by lush green plants and trees.
