About H H Dalai Lama Main Temple

The Tsung La Khang, also known as the Dalai Lama Temple is located in upper Dharamshala and is a short walk from way from McLeod Ganj Bus stand. The place remains abuzz with devotees and visitors from around the world and looks beautiful with all the colorful prayer flags and fairy lights. If you want some peace of mind, do head in there for a morning meditation or walk along with chanting monks. There is a long meditation trail around the temple. It is called Ling Khor and is adorned with stupas, Buddhist prayer flags, and mini shrines. The monastery’s structure is beautiful, and it houses many shrine rooms. It is also the home to Namgyal Monastery and houses beautiful statues of Gautam Buddha along with 2 other statues of Guru Rinpoche and Chenresig. These statutes were brought from Tibet and are kept in the largest main shrine. The main office and residence of his holiness Dalai Lama are adjacent to this monastery. Worshipping and services are held daily at the monastery. If you are lucky, you get to hear some words of wisdom from the holiness himself in real. Close to the temple, there is a market so can indulge in some souvenir shopping as well.
