About Ghum Monastery
It is best known for its 15-feet high statue of Maitreya Buddha which stands tall in the main hall of the Monastery. The place is also amongst the top tourist attractions in Darjeeling due to its massive collection of rare Buddhist manuscripts and records. Another attractive thing about the Monastery is its walls that are painted with depictions of Buddhism wisdom and Tibetan art.
