About Mindrolling Monastery

One of the most famous places to visit in Dehradun, Mindrolling Monastery is among the six major monasteries of Tibet’s Nyingma School. Originally constructed in 1676 by Rigzin Terdak Lingpa, the monastery was re-established in 1965 by Khochhen Rinpoche. Highly significant to tourists as well as religious visitors, the place is regarded as an architectural masterpiece.

Surrounded by endless gardens, vast spaces, and a striking stupa, the tallest of its kind in Asia, the monastery is known to offer spiritual guidance to hundreds of devotees every day. The paintings and murals around the monastery depict the life of Buddha as well as teaching from Buddhism.

On the fourth floor, visitors would find a massive open space that allows them to experience a 360° view of Dehradun Valley. Home to Ngagyur Nyingma College, one of the largest institutes in the world dedicated to Buddhism studies, the monastery provides education to over 300 monks at a time.
