Buddhist temple

On our drive to Dharmsala, our guide stopped at this temple to stretch and use WC. Up to this point the scenery was beautiful. The dive to the temple is short, but once in gates the structures are amazing. The temple is colorful and peaceful, and the grounds well kept.

All across the way, we saw wheat being cultivated in terrace lands. This was new to know and interesting too. We also got to learn that there are metre gauge trains operated from Pathankot till Joginder Nagar via Pathankot.

Joginder nagar i found one of the good city in Himachal which is having all kind of shops and accommodations are easily available. You also have options to go on tracking further on nearby mountains. As We went for paragliding in bir so we stayed in Joginder nagar it is only 4kms from Bir. So its good to plan your travel upto joginder nagar if you are coming from delhi. Stay in Good hotel here & next day morning goahead for Paragliding or camping wherever you want to go.
