White Monastery or Seto Gomba, also known as Amitabha Monastery, is a Buddhist Monastery in Nepal, offering a mix of religious importance and natural anesthetic. The vivid terrain and the lush green landscape of the surrounding make the sunset and sunrise here, a treat to watch. Visitors can observe the whole of the Kathmandu Valley from this place. The soothing atmosphere draws most travellers wanting to soak up some tranquillity after exploring the bustling city of Kathmandu.
The highlight of the magnificent White Monastery is the Tibetan architecture with stunning statues, murals and paintings that depict the life of Gautama Buddha and his teachings. Through these depictions, one can get an idea of the teachings and practices taught to the monks. Another attractive feature of the monastery is the cluster of several statues of Lord Buddha installed artistically almost everywhere on raised hillocks or pedestals in the complex. A unique arrangement has two flights of stairs leading to a central staircase which can be taken by tourists to see the topmost statue of Gautama Buddha. These statues are all coloured in gold and add to the aesthetic appeal of the monastery.
The campus is clean, well-maintained and is surrounded by lush greenery. The divine vibe is so peaceful that one cannot help but feel their nerves calming down as they stroll across. There is also a decent restaurant for the tourists to relish a local snack or a meal before heading back to the city. A splendid view of the valley can be enjoyed from any location in the campus. In fact, the climb up the pathways is definitely captivating but what is even more enchanting is the view of the Kathmandu Valley as one walks down the same pathways. This is something that has to be experienced when visiting Nepal.
