I visited Ranka Monastery in June 2017 and really felt great there. We visited when the Prayers and Chanting was going on. It really felt amazing to sit inside the Monastery during Prayer. Amazing place and nice location.

We had to climb some steps to reach this Ranka monastery. The road was not too good. The monastery was big. Many Buddhists were offering prayer in it.

This is one of the biggest monasteries of Gangtok. One can experience the Buddhism prayers . Need to carry valid identity proof like passport, Aadhar card as there is lot of security in this place.Really very different experience inside the monastery .

Ranka Monastery is the most peaceful place in Gangtok. Drinking coffee at main building in great natural ambience is priceless. Only challenge is the bad road to the Monastery.

Its a sacred place for Buddhists, located near to Tibetology institute at Gangtok, has a little climb up so difficult for people with ailing knees and cardiovascular problems. I liked the place.
