Culture of dharamshala

The culture of Dharamshala is very vibrant and closely linked with the religious practices followed by the people of this city. The influences of the nomadic Gaddis, Hinduism and Buddhism can all be found in the traditions here. With the coming of the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government-in-exile, the culture and heritage of Tibet has also been brought to this hill station, so much that it resembles Lhasa the capital of Tibet, from a cultural point of view. Handicrafts and handmade garments, made in the Tibetan style, are in abundant supply in this city. The traditional folk dances of India, linked with Hinduism, are performed in Dharamshala. The theatrical traditions of Tibet are also preserved here, with performances of Tibetan opera accompanied by drums, dance and music, particular to Tibet. Consequently, Dharamshala is quite famous for its authentic Tibetan cuisine. The people of this town celebrate many festivals like the Haldi festival, Lohri Agricultural Festival, Losar Festival, International Himalayan Festival and many more.
