“A different experience all together”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Our visit to the Dalai Lama Temple was a very enriching one. Spiritual tranquility is what you would experience in abundance. It felt like a different place all together. The museum in the temple campus was very informative...I wasn't aware of Tibetan suppression by the Chinese to such extent until my visit. The numerous self immolation that have taken place in Tibet were very disturbing. It gave us an insight into Tibetan culture and also how it has been destroyed and its existence has been crushed.

When in M Ganj...one must visit Dalai Lama Temple...a very enriching experience...

The place and surroundings are very nice. Peaceful atmosphere, and silent surroundings. One feels like meditating there.

“Worth a visit but not on the same scale as an ancient monastery”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Obviously somewhere which one must visit when travelling to Dharamsala, but definitely doesn't have the character or authenticity of an ancient monastery (such as can be seen in Bhutan, or probably in Tibet itself - I'm yet to visit Tibet). Of course the experience of a glimpse into the lives of the exiled Tibetan community in India is fascinating, but the physical structure of the complex is nothing particularly special.
