Great Tibetan monastery , beautifully made. We had the fortune of seeing the Karmapa presiding over the Buddhist prayer with hundreds of monks reciting the verses. Beautiful painitings and statues adorn the place and the Dhauladhar range can be seen in the background.

We happened to reach here when a recital from the main priest was happening and there were some 100+ monks listening to him. Was an interesting experience seeing this live. Otherwise also a good place to visit while in Dharamsala.

I traveled here solo from McCleod Ganj by bus to have an audience with His Holiness Karmapa. This is a powerful and holy place to visit, and there is the possibility to meet the Karmapa, which is an extraordinary blessing. This is a must-visit site when visiting Dharsmsala on pilgrimage. The monks of the temple had one day of holiday... More

The positive vibes one gets inside the monastery cannot be described in words, they can only be experienced. The place is peaceful, clean, you can see monks chanting and you can interact with them too. Some people can also be doing services such as brooming the floors. The views from the monastery are superb. At times you feel jealous of... More

Its nice in here. It was great to see monks chanting, a 1st for me given the fact i have visited so many monastries across ladakh, gangtok, and mcleodganj. The restaurant in side the monastery campus serves both great veg and non veg food which is very cheap. It was the best thukpa i would say. Not many visit this... More

The monastery had no other visitors except our small group. The monks had just completed chanting, some were doing outdoor training, and young monks were running about; creating a joyful and lovely atmosphere. The temple is beautiful and was open allowing for a perfect quiet meditation. Because of its location, it seems to be visited less frequently, but its worth... More
