Bhutia Busty Monastery, Darjeeling: How To Reach, Best Time & Tips

About Bhutia Busty Monastery

Earlier located in the Observatory Hill, this Monastery is currently situated in the Bhutia Colony. The Monastery was built in 1761 by the Lama Dorje Rinzing, however, in 1815, the place was plundered and rebuilt in 1861.

It was relocated in 1879 to the Colony and again destroyed by the earthquake, which led to its renovation in 1934. For this reason, it is considered to be quite a favorite spot for tourists, and its rich history attracts a lot of them. 

The Monastery is structured in a traditional Tibetan style with a touch of Sikkim culture, and it belongs to the Red Sect of Buddhists. This place also exhibits murals that depict the story of Buddha. Even though the walls tell a lot of stories related to Buddhism, photography is strictly prohibited inside the premises of the building.
