Wood Art in Sikkim Monasteries – Windows, Doors and Pillars

The design of the Buddhist Monasteries in Sikkim is heavily influenced by Tibetan designs and bears a close similarity to the visuals seen on the other side of the Himalayas.

But the use of softer colors, floral motifs and curvilinear patterns give the Sikkimese monasteries a unique character that is probably prettier.

In the following slideshow, windows, doors, balustrades and pillars from Rumtek, Lingdum, Ngor, Permagyantse, and Tashiding monasteries have been put together with the aim of capturing the essence of Sikkimese Buddhist Wood Art.
