Photographer's Note

Road to Rumtek : This is another image from Rumtek.The colorful buildings in the background are the Monastery Buildings within the Rumtek Monastery Campus.This shot was taken from the road outside the monastery.It has some colorful elements of the surroundings.The area is very peaceful and serene and perfect for deep meditations and prayers around 24 km from the little hustle bustle of the somewhat busy life in Gangtok.The Rumtek campus includes the main shrine-temple, the monastery, a retreat centre, a monastic college (Shedra), a nuns' hostel, some stupas, a protectors shrine, other establishments for the community and other religious institutions.The day was a bit too overcast and foggy as a result could not get any colors from the otherwise blue wintry sky of January.
