Guru Ghantal Monastery is a Buddhist monastery in above the village of Tupchiling in Himachal Pradesh, northern India, on the confluence of the rivers Chandra and Bhaga. This monastery was founded by Padma Sambhava and is more than 800 years old. The monastery has distinctive wooden (as opposed to clay) idols of Guru Padma Sambhava, Brijeshwari Devi and several other lamas. There is also a blackstone statue of a Kali the Hindu goddess, giving some evidence that it was once a Hindu temple.
The wall paintings are in stone colours but many of its tresures have been removed and the monastery has fallen into neglect. On the 15th lunar day (mid June) the Ghantal Festival was celeberated at which the visiting lamas and Thakurs used to feast for one day but is no longer celebrated
