Khatek Pema Choling Monastery (1985 A.D)
This is a small Karma Kagyupa Monastery located in Asam Lingzey village, East Sikkim. It was built in the year 1985 with Government aid and is supported by public contribution. The place was simply a hermitage site earlier where Monks go for retreat courses.Later, people of the area, faced difficulty fetching Lamas from far off places, for their religious services. Thus they unanimously decided to build a Monastery at this holy site.

After completion of the monastery the management Committee engaged one Master Lama, who has been deputed from Rumtek Monastery, for recruiting the young monks to study & practice Buddhist rituals. At present, the monastery has more than 30 monks and functions like other monasteries.
