Place of Worship
“One of the most popular monasteries of Tibetan Buddhism is the Kapan Monastery which is perched on a hill not far north of Boudha. Each year a large number of foreigners arrive here to study Buddhism and meditation. Kapan Monastery was founded by Lama Thubten Yeshe who died in 1984. Interestingly, a small Spanish boy named Osel Torres became his successor after he was declared a reincarnation of the great Lama. However, the reincarnation does not reside at Kapan anymore.”

This place knows meat if you are a meat lover and there are lot of good vegan items as well. I have been here for almost like 4 years, and never have been disappointed in food and hospitality. They serve delicious desserts as well. If you are a chocolate and cheese cake lover, do not miss this place.”
