Thongsa Gompa, also renowned as Bhutanese Monastery, was established in 1692 and is the oldest monastery situated in the region of Kalimpong. The presently seen Gompa is the renovated one, after the demolition of the original Gompa by the ravage of Gurkhas in Sikkim. The original Gompa was built under the Bhutanese rule and it is believed that this was built under the direct guidance of Bhutan King.

Buddhists monks offer everyday prayer here and this place is a perfect place for mediation. Many activities aiming towards the uplift of spirituality are undertaken in this Gompa. Tourists are allowed to visit every part of the Gompa.
