Tibet has maintained a unique culture, religion and language for centuries. After the Chinese
invasion in 1950, the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s political and religious leader sought and was given asylum
in India, along with thousands of Tibetan refugees. Today, there is a thriving settlement in
Dharamshala, which is called Tibet-in-exile.
To learn about Tibetan culture and religion, there are many places of interest at Dharamshala.
Tsuglagkhang, Mcleodganj the residence of the Dalai Lama is a must-visit, as are the Tibet
Museum, Dalai Lama temple, Tibetan Parliament House, Library of Tibetan Works and Archives,
War Memorial and Kangra Art Museum. The Tibetan Children’s Village, a charitable organisation,
caters to children who are in the greatest need among the refugees. For the last 5 decades, it has
run solely on the generosity of its well-wishers.
At Gyuto and Namgyal Monasteries, you can interact with the Tibetan monks and get valuable
insights into the peace-loving Buddhist philosophy. If you are in the right place at the right time,
