Tsogyal Shedrub Dargyeling Nunnery

Penor Rinpoche established this nunnery as complementary to Namdrolling Monastery and probably this is the biggest nunnery in India. We were a bit hesitant in going inside the nunnery; a place which is sacred and also strictly women's only .
There was a little boy selling vegetable infront of the main gate pretending to be the care taker of that nunnery. He eventually stopped us. Since hesitant, we were out of wit. Lavannya was the only woman in our group; so being an woman photographer she went inside to find out an opportunity for shoot, if any. Later on we were allowed to go inside and to take photographs. People were so friendly and co-operative that we were over-whelmed at their open-mindedness.
