Ralang Monastery, South Sikkim Overview

Located just 6 km from Ravangla, this is a Buddhist monastery of the Kagyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Legend has it that when the 9th Karmapa performed the Rabney, he threw grains from his residence in Tiber and the site where the grains fell became the location for Ralang Monastery.

This monastery has an extensive collection of paintings and thangkas. It is also the host to the annual festival Pang Lhabsol in which Mount Kangchenjunga is worshipped. This festival starts on the 15th day of the 7th month of Buddhist calendar (August-September) and ends on the 29th day of the 10th month of the Buddhist Calendar (December). This monastery is also famous for its Mahakala Dance that takes place every year in the month of November.
