    KAGBENI MONASTERY

    by davidjo Written Mar 28, 2012

    The monastery in Kagbeni is very noticeable when you catch your first view of the village before descending. It is a brick red building which is on the western edge of the village. If you are lucky enough to be able to go inside the monastery you will see richly colourful walll murals and other interesting items, such as the religious books wrapped in silk clothes, Buddhist statues.

    LOCAL FESTIVAL

    by davidjo Written Mar 28, 2012

    We were lucky enough to attend a festival in Kagbeni, i believe it was in May if i am not mistaken. The religious books were taken from the monastery and paraded around the village by the monks who were dressed in their full regalia. The festival had something to do with fertility rights also as you can see by the photographs.
