  • Located in Deorali and less than 2 km from the main town of Gangtok. The institute is perched in a small forest of birch trees, oak and magnolia. a small wonderful serene ambience. It is one of the most important and famous institutes in the world that does research in the areas of Tibetan language and culture. It also has in its premises a museam, a Tibetan library with rich collection and also a reference center about Tibet and Himalayas in general.
  • Very interesting place to visit after Do Drul Chorten, it's just 50 meters ahead of the monastery. The place is expansive. One can get to know a lot about Buddhism here as the exhibits kept there have deep roots in Tibetan and Buddhism History. Photography is strictly ban inside the Museum.
