The Mag-Dhog Yolmowa Monastery, locally known as Aloobari after its location, dedicated to world peace is a popular sight on the Old Military Road. Its construction started in 1914 with the intention of warding off World War I under the supervision of Sri Sangay Lama, a high priest of the Yolmowa - a community that is a native of north-east Nepal and is now living in Darjeeling.

The monastery houses many idols of Lord Buddha and Padmasambhava along with ancient Buddhist manuscripts and beautiful paintings believed to have been done using grass and herbs.
