About Tawang
The Tawang monastery is one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in India. The 6th Dalai Lama was born here. The main attractions are the gigantic Io-metre gilded Buddha statue,a large collection of priceless manuscripts, books and tangkhas, which depict Buddha and the tutelary deities in different poses. Foreign visitors require a Restricted Area Permit (RAP) to enter Arunachal Pradesh to visit Tawang. Further details regarding RAP may be obtained from the nearest Indian Embassy or Indiatourism offices.

One more interesting monastery in India's basket, the Tawang monastery is a well known monastery in Northeastern part of India, and the effect of nearby Tibetan Buddhism is clearly visible here. The geographical region was a matter of major political dispute between India and China, after Indian independence in 1947.

The place is a beautifully landscaped hill station in the Arunachal Pradesh State in the northeastern part of India. The Gelukpa sect is predominantly found in the region, which closely resembles other Tibetan sects.
