Monuments In Yuksom

• Dubdi Monastery: The Dubdi monastery has religious relevance as well as monumental importance. It is the oldest monastery in Sikkim and the coronation of the first Chogyal Phuntsog Namgyal took place here. The Namgyal family then started reigning over the region for the next 333 year from 1642 to 1975. This marks the importance of Yuksom as a place of significant historic relevance as during the Namgyal reign the place saw some major development leading to Buddhism setting roots in Sikkim.
