Accommodation and Fees

options for sangha, students and visitors

Available options:

Nalanda being a Monastery has accommodation on the premises only for men. Accommodation is limited and as a result, new residents (under the age of 35) are asked to share a room.

Female students usually rent accommodation in the town of Lavaur (4.5km away) or near the monastery. If you need help with finding accommodation, feel free to contact us.
