You feel like you are travelling in old time with such lovely Tibetan people around working hard to keep the culture and heritage alive.

you are only going to like it if you yourself are an artist. otherwise you will easily get bored. Maybe their events would be good but we went there while the rehearsals were going on and i didn't find it that interesting.

Few of the evnts are ticketed. when I was there went for dharamsala film festival (which was ticketed) and a practise session of the performace that was to take place for the Dalai Lama's 80 th birthday.

It was a treat to watch various dances and music from the various provinces of Tibet so beautifully preserved in Exile. Tibetan Dances are very pure and soul stirring... The dances look very simple but are graceful, dynamic very lively and need a lot of dedication to master their intricacies...

Nothing great but if you have time you can visit. It is very close to the market. There was not much crowd and not very exciting

Though in TIPA, except attending a musical nite I haven't seen much but if you happen to cross any performance done by TIPA performers, its a must watch then. Absolute perfectionists. Beautiful Tibetan heritage and tradition they have managed to preserve through various forms of art.
