About dharamshala

Home to the holy abode of the Dalai Lama at McLeod Ganj, this town located in Kangra Valley has numerous Buddhist monasteries, scattered amidst the hills surrounding this region. \r\n\r\nWith the establishment of the Tibetan government-in-exile, the traditions and flavors of Tibet have found its way into the culture and cuisine of Dharamshala. The region also has many ancient temples and beautiful churches built during the reign of the British, tucked away in the lush green forests. Dharamshala boasts of an International Cricket Stadium, which has hosted many international and IPL cricket matches. The Dharamshala International Film Festival (DIFF) is held every year, in the month of November.
