Perched atop the Durpin Hill in the Kalimpong region of Darjeeling, Zong Dog Palri Fo Brang Monastery is a beautiful place to visit. Also known as Durpin Monastery, this site holds great religious significance for the Tibetan Buddhism followers. This monastery was consecrated in 1976 by His Holiness Dalai Lama, almost after six years of its establishment. He brought along with him the holy Kunguyar, a Tibetan religious scripture with 108 volumes, which is well-preserved inside the monastery.

Zong Dog Palri Fo Brang Monastery is a fine example of the Buddhist style of architecture, which is simple yet splendid. Colourful Tibetan paintings adorn the interiors of this shrine, lending it an aesthetic appeal. The prayer hall of this temple has a beautiful mandala, which looks three-dimensional in appearance. Devotees as well as tourists flock in great numbers during Tibetan festivals that are hosted in the monastery. Views of the surrounding forested hills from this monastery are truly breathtaking.
