About mcleod ganj

The best way to connect with God is to connect with nature and McLeodganj is the best manifestation of this thought. Nestled within the snow-covered Dhauladhar Mountains, this Indian town in the state of Himachal Pradesh is a perfect blend of natural beauty and spirituality. ’Little Lhasa’ as it is famously known by the huge Tibetan population here is also called ‘Upper Dharamsala’ as it is at a higher elevation from Dharamsala.\r\n\r\nThe Tsuglag Khang, the temple of the Dalai Lama is the most important destination here. One can find huge statues of various Buddhist deities and teachers who are worshiped by the Tibetans in this temple. Other landmarks like Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts, Library of Tibetan Works and Archives reflect on the history of this community. Gangkyi is the office of the Tibetan government in exile. The view of the Bhagsu Waterfall is enchanting, the views of the mighty Himalayas from the Magic View Café and Moon Light Café make for a memorable meal. Many shops at the main street market add colors to the canvas of this land, just like the colorful flora and fauna adds color to nature’s canvas here. Remember to buy a souvenir of the Tibetan Buddhist faith to behold the calmness of this place in your hearts.
