The Great International Tashi Gomang Stupa

Salugara Monastery is among the most frequented revered places, located in the outskirts of Siliguri. Located 6 km from the city, the Buddhist shrine is visited by tourists for meditation. The ideal tranquil location for meditation was established by Tibetan monks and followers of religious leader, His Holiness Dalai Lama.

One of the highlighting features of this monastery is the 100 ft stupa, which is believed to be founded by the Tibetan Lama, Kalu Rinpoche. This stupa is revered by the monks as it brings out five kinds of relics of Buddhism. The object of idolisation is believed to bring salvation to those who sight it.
