15th-century Likir Gompa very photogenically covers a hillside with archetypal Tibetan structures. The first prayer hall to the right on entry has seats allocated for both the Dalai Lama and his brother, Likir’s honourary head lama. After two more colourful prayer halls you climb to the cute, one-room museum . The gompa is backed by a giant gilded 20th-century Maitreya statue that looks great from afar, though it’s peeling and looks rather gaudy closer up.
