A must do experience at morning prayer even just an as observer
Apr 2020
I got up very early and joined the monks (as an observer) while they finished breakfast and did morning prayers. Stroll down Temple road, clear security and go up sit on the platform as the day gets underway. Explore the Temple, walk past the prayer wheels and watch the buzz. I made a donation outside the Temple after I left. You can then follow the road around the perimeter. I had a arranged to meet the Dalai Lama on one of my trips which was a wonderful experience. Bear in mind that this is in McLeod Ganj above Dharamshala.

No vehicle goes to the gate of the temple,but you have to walk amidst the main market of McLedoganj doing shopping and if you like to eat small cafes are also there.It is a huge complex and photography is allowed not only in the premises but also inside the temple.Though it is crowded, but as the area is so large, so gathering is not felt.You can see Buddhist monks reading hymns, mediating in the premises.One thing to remember in this complex is to keep quite as much as possible.Just keep quite and enjoy the beauty.

Dalai Lama Temple and its review.
Mar 2020
Dalai Lama Temple set in Dharamshala, the current residence of His Holiness, The Dalai Lama temple has beautiful huge size artefacts of Lord Buddha in the inner Sanctorum .Different postures.One can sit in peace and go thru the rituals and prayers being recited by red robed Buddhist Lamas.One can also see the 24 revolving heavy wood structures while each tourist moves by hand to define the 24 hours chakra of human life.A place worth a visit to understand the teachings and philosophy of Buddhist way of life.

Situated in the middle of a busy narrow street, this temple has peace of mind to offer. Compound is really calm and soothing. Connectivity is good. Also place is surrounded by fabulous cafes.

Toured the complex and temple and apart from the overwhelming spirituality and tranquility of the place the views are fantastic. The town of McLeodganj is very compact with very narrow streets lined with shops (similar to some towns in Italy). Great place for rest and reflection even if one is not religiously inclined.

At this place, We can forget all our tension and worries. Temple and environment, both are very calm and quiet. Please don't forget to take the Prasad, because it is very tasty.
