Going to Lava and not seeing the monastery may end up being the downturn in your trip. The monastery has a four acre piece of land where hundreds of monks live and preach their beliefs.
The architecture of the monastery is exactly like those in Tibet. The place has various prayer halls, lawns, sitting areas and a huge Buddha statue. Built back in 1980s the monastery is extremely well maintained. A small reminder- keep your camera fully charged before entering the place. You don't want to miss documenting even a minute of your time here.
