Dharamshala means a place devoted for religious purposes. It is the land of Buddha and Dalai Lama. It is famed as the holy abode of Tibetan Charismatic Leader Dalai Lama and houses the Tibetan Government in exile. The presence of Dalai Lama and the onset of Tibetan refugees made Dharamshala a popular tourist destination. The Dalai Lama Temple Complex is a beautiful and peaceful place located in Upper Dharamshala. It is perfect for long serene walks, or early morning meditation with chanting monks. Visit the Tsuglag Khang Complex and Namgyal Monastery, which is the home of the Dalai Lama, and also the largest Tibetan temple outside Tibet. Thousands of pilgrims come here every year seeking the blessings of the Tibetan leader. Several religious festivities and dances are organised here through the year.
