Gompa Buddhist Temple

About Gompa Buddhist Temple:

The Gompa sits on top of the hill literally. A small but colorful gate marks the entrance of the Gompa. A white stupa with golden carvings stood just outside the main Gompa and against the backdrop of green rolling hills, it looked very beautiful. The Gompa is actually near the main road but it seemed separated from the rest of the town by this small hill that stood out in the hill station. It is by far the most peaceful and serene place I visited in Itanagar. It is also a nice spot to view Itanagar from a higher point.

The roof is contrasted by the green carpets that surround the shrine. The most important feature for the tourists as well as the followers of the sculpture of Lord Buddha.

One of the famous tourist spots in Itanagar, the Gompa Buddhist Temple may be of varied interests. One can go there to worship, connect with Buddha and his teachings. One can go to absorb the highly colorful and welcoming nature. It can easily be a good spot to meditate. There are many places to sit inside the Gompa complex. There’s also a nice cafe right outside the Gompa. One can stay here for a long time, without complaining.
