Nice place
Jul 2021 • Family
Its a great place with a peaceful temple. One can see various craft workshops in progress like wood carving, wood painting, metal sculpture, thanka painting etc. Normally they would take in students for training but not now, due to the pandemic. They have a shop also, though overpriced. I loved the temple here and the vibes. One can sit here quietly and meditate. It also has a cafe, which was quite decent. The place closes for lunch 1-2 pm. Overall, the vibe of this place is very positive and refreshing, with water fountains flowing around.

Nestled in the foot of the Dhauladhar ranges,a quaint and quiet Tibetan institute of amazing art and culture.Its amazing to see the artisans working on the art of statue making,thangka paintings and applique.The doll museum is a must see.One can purchase the art and craft souveniers from the flagship store.A place so serene with lovely gardens,streams and not to miss the open cafe to satiate your thirst and hunger with excellent coffee,cakes and savouries.
If visiting Dharamshala ,Norbulingka a 30min taxi ride from Mcleod Ganj is a must visit.

Horrible backward place
Mar 2020 • Friends
Power shortages all the time. Expensive food for horrible service. People arrogant, greedy and unreliable. Filthy and full of dog packs wandering. Not worth the money or the time. Yuck.
