Each furnished apartment-style room has a separate bedroom, private, full bathroom, and living room. If you wish to book directly with us, please click the contact us button below this page.
Located near Tinchuli Chowk, a typical Nepali neighbourhood, the monastery is an enjoyable 10-minute walk to the stunning Boudhanath Stupa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the largest stupas and most famous pilgrimage sites in the world. The monastery also features easy access to transportation, exquisite Himalayan mountain views, and typical Nepali meals at pre-scheduled monastery meal times.
We are a Buddhist Monastery with 10 senior monks and 111 young, novice monks, who we fondly refer to as mini monks. Nepali and Tibetan are the primary languages spoken, but many speak English
Guests are welcome to join in any monastery activities, such as puja (prayer) sessions, mini monk recess time, and twice-daily tea breaks. Additionally, we offer a variety of meditation classes in English taught by an experienced Western dharma teacher. Traditional Nepali meals, which are included in your stay, are served in the community dining room
We are also ready, willing, and able to help you arrange holy tours, trekking trips, and general sightseeing activities.
Tinchuli Chowk is a vibrant neighborhood providing anything a guest could want from a shopping, eating, or interacting experience within a five-minute walk from the entrance to the monastery. Not only are there plentiful, delicious Nepali-style cafes serving local staples such as dal bhat khana platters and vegetable and non-vegetable momos alike, but because of our proximity to the Boudha Stupa and the local Tibetan population, this is one of best neighborhoods in Kathmandu to enjoy laping (spicy mung bean noodle dish), Tibetan bread, and thukpa (noodle soup), among others. Of course, there are also many continental options as well.
Like all of Kathmandu, an adventure or new sight, sound, or experience is right around any corner, and our location does not disappoint in this arena.
How to Get Around
A bus stop and taxi stand are located right outside our front door. Airport pick up and drop off is available for USD15.
