Bhutia Busty Monastery : landscapes of Sikkim

The origins of the Bhutia Busty Monastery can be traced back to the late 19th century when Lama Lochen Tulku, a renowned Buddhist scholar and practitioner, established the monastery. Recognizing the spiritual significance of the site, Lama Lochen Tulku chose to construct the monastery on a hilltop overlooking the picturesque town of Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim. Bhutia Busty Monastery traces its changes in location and structure due to unfortunate and tragic incidents experienced by this monastery. This strategic location not only allowed for the peaceful contemplation of the sacred teachings but also served as a beacon of religious and cultural influence throughout the region.
