The Enchey Monastery built 200 years back on the site blessed by Lama Druptob Karpo, a Tantric master known for his power of flying. This is an important seat of the Nyingma order having images of Gods, Goddesses and other religious objects in its premises. Every year around January "Chaam" or religious masked dance is performed in this monastery also. Lama Drupthob Karpa had built this as a small hermitage which, later during the reign of Sikyong Tulku (1909-1910), was built in the shape of a Chinese Pagoda.
