I am a regular visitor these days to Chenrezig Institute. I have always found it a place of tranquility. It is pen to the public Thursday to Sunday. It’s best to book if you wish to have lunch.

Met up with some other ladies here and had lunch. This is a beautiful place and is wonderful to come close to nature. It is very serene and rewarding to the senses.
