Interesting Places worth Visiting
Gompas: The Gompas or the monasteries are major tourist attraction sites in this small hill town, which has been deeply influenced by Buddhism. There are three major monasteries which tourists like to visit. The first is the Thongsha Gompa , which is the oldest monastery in the region and dates back to 1692. The second o f these monasteries is the Tharpa Choling Monastery, belonging to the Gelukpa sect and which was constructed in 1937. The third is the Zong Dog Palri Fo-Brang Monastery which was sanctified by the Dalai Lama himself while in exile.
St. Teresa Church: The most interesting fact about this church is that the local craftsmen tried to give it the look of a Gompa. The church walls are decorated with wooden carvings that portray the scenecs form The Bible. However, here again the people portrayed in the scenes look more like Buddhist monks, which is an evidence of the deep influence of Buddhism and Tibetan culture on this town.
Dharmodaya Vihar: Located on Rishi road, which is just a short way from the town of Kalimpong, Dharmodaya Vihar is a Buddhist temple built in the Nepali style. The statue of Buddha inside the temple was a donation by the Buddhist from Burma. The temple also houses a library which has a great collection of some really old books.
