Sacred caves

Sarchog Bephug, Khandro Sangphug, Dechenphug, Lhari Nyingphug

In the four directions of Tashiding Monastery are the Four Sacred Caves – Sarchog Bephug in the east, Khandro Sangphug in the south, Dechenphug in the west and Lhari Nyingphug in the north – dedicated to the four meritorious deeds. Tak-phug or cave hermitage is one of the three types of monasteries in Sikkim. Buddhist texts suggest that it was after a series of meditations in these caves that Padmasambhava was known to have blessed the sites of some of Sikkim’s future monasteries and stupas.
