TRAVEL IN TASHIDING SHOW MAP

The small villageof Tashiding on a hilltop near Pelling in West Sikkim was built by the half sister of Chador Namgyal in 1716 on a spot consecrated by Guru Rimpoche, between the Ratong and Rangit rivers on a ridge overlooking both. This most holy chorten known as 'Thong-Wa-rang-Dol' literally means 'Saviours by mere sight'. Tashiding monastery is constructed on top of a heart shaped hill with the back drop of the sacred Mt. Khang-chen-Dzonga. Inside the monastery, a pot of holy water is kept sealed only to be revealed and its droplets given to devotees once every year at the Bumchu Festival.

In January or February, the monastery celebrates the Bumchu festival during which lamas gingerly open a sacred pot. Then, judging from the level of holy water within, they make all important predictions about the coming year. Each spring, pilgrims came here for the Bumchu festival to drink water from the sacred pot which has never run dry for over 300 years.
