Buddhist monasteries


The land of the Buddha, India bridges the material world to the spiritual. The birthplace of Buddhism, our Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour is designed for those seeking peace of mind and rejuvenation. All the sacred sites have been associated with Lord Buddha right from his birth to the rise of Buddhism in India. All in all the tour package offers the best of the Buddhist circuit in India.
A number of Buddhist monasteries or gompas spread across the length and breadth of India and speak volume about the Buddhist heritage of the country. Many of these monasteries were built centuries back and have withstood the test of time. Still many others were destroyed or damaged in past and had to undergo tremendous reconstruction work. The architecture, murals, statues of Buddha and bodhisattvas inside make for an interesting visit.

Monasteries may vary greatly in size, comprising a small dwelling accommodating only a hermit, or in the case of communities anything from a single building housing only one senior and two or three junior monks or nuns, to vast complexes and estates housing tens or hundreds. A monastery complex typically comprises a number of buildings which include a church, dormitory, cloister, refectory, library, balneary and infirmary. Depending on the location, the monastic order and the occupation of its inhabitants, the complex may also include a wide range of buildings that facilitate self-sufficiency and service to the community.
Buddhist monasteries are generally called vihara (Pali language). Viharas may be occupied by males or females, and in keeping with common English usage, a vihara populated by females may often be called a nunnery or a convent. However, vihara can also refer to a temple. gompa
