It was a jaw dropping sight to watch the artists work on those paintings ever so uniquely , I just felt like sitting there for hours n hours to come. The food is good too which they offer at the humming bird.

Loved the place for its environment and sustainable architecture. There is lot of hand made art and craft which you would definitely love. It also inspires a lot due to its cleanliness. When you see the crafts being made by learners in the institute, you get to recognize your creative self. A must visit in Dharmshala.
