About Tibetan Handicraft Centre

The scenic beauty of Dharamshala enthralls and entice adventure junkies into its hilly terrain. The presence of His Holiness, the Dalai Lama adds more fervor to the religious enthusiasts. This city is equally popular for its handicraft products that are a notch above the rest. The Tibetan Handicraft Centre started in the year 1963 with valuable contributions of the Dalai Lama. From its meager beginnings, this store has gone on to become one of the most popular stores in Dharamshala. Many Tibetans were trained into weaving and employment was provided to them. They provide accommodation and assist children with their education. The center also embarks in several noble activities such as coordinating Medicare, providing a pension plan for retired workers, caring for the workers and funeral expenses for their families. They also make important contributions in exile, for the Tibetan Government.

Pro Tip: Carry cash. As this shop may not accept cards
