It is a true architectural wonder
The 40 meters high zen picture of Tathagata, as Buddha often referred himself as, is truly an architectural wonder. It shows the beauty of Siddhartha Gautama in a pristine Himalayan setting that is surrounded by a beautiful garden.
No matter what your religion is, you can always come here for peace and walk this natural landmark to see the surrounding Himalayan setting. All of it becomes an even better experience if you stage your stay at The Lindsay Everland in Ravangla, which is exactly a stone’s throw away from this Park!
An age-old pilgrim site for Buddhists
In fact, this Park and the Buddha statue are a part of the Gompa Monastery of Rabong that is considered by many as one of the oldest places of pilgrimage for Buddhists. So, if you are a follower of the zen master, then you should definitely visit this place.
It was inaugurated by the 14th Dalai Lama himself in 2013– and it is surrounded by green hill forest with the snow-white Kanchenjunga range behind it. A wonderfully dressed landscape indeed – something that is a feast for the eyes!
It’s a refreshing change of pace
If you are looking to take a break from the bustling city life and want a natural recluse, then Rabong is the place to be. This South Sikkim small town is not much populated. It is the ideal place to relax & rejuvenate in the lap of nature. Plus there are plenty of other things to see apart from the Buddha Park. Maenam Sanctuary, Ralong Monastery and Rayong Sunrise View Point are some of the principal tourist spots in Ravangla!
