About Namgyal Monastery in Dharamshala

The Namgyal Monastery in Dharamshala is one of the most popular sites for Buddhist Studies. Also referred to as the Namgyal Monastery Institute of Buddhist Studies or the Namgyal Tantric College, it is the personal monastery of the Dalai Lama. It is the largest Tibetan monastery in the world, outside of Tibet. Located in McLeodGanj in Dharamshala, the monastery was founded in around 1564 in Lhasa, Tibet by the Third Dalai Lama, the monastery was named in order to honor Namgyälma, the female goddess of long life. After the Tibetan uprising, the monastery was shifted to India, where it continues to thrive and attract visitors from all over the world. Namgyal Monastery is responsible for maintaining the rituals and teachings of all the main lineages of Buddhism.

Tourists visiting Dharamshala make sure that they get to visit this monastery, and spend a few hours here just taking in the solitude, peace and quiet. The almost rhythmic chants of the monks who live and pray here will transport you to another world for sure. There are huge, imposing figurines of Lord Buddha all over the monastery, which make for interesting viewing. Make sure to give this place a visit, whenever you come to Dharamshala.

    • Trip to Himachal

      I am quite disappointed with travel triangle because their service assistance person dont pick up the call in the time of need, you have to call to their service center or message to their whatsapp group then they do some action. I tried to call their service person Mr. Ujjawal Kumar but he didn't pick up my call so I had to wait one night to get my problem solve until I called to their call center and message to their whatsapp group. Otherwise Miss Sheetal of LR holidays was very helpful and she changed our hotel I manali as we didn't like the hotel. Driver Mr.Anurag was very good in behaviour. He kept car clean and maintained. Our Hotel kamna hill resorts in Shimla was excellent in service and food. we had been shifted to Hotel Devlok from New Harmony inn which was good one nad near to the mall road of manali. If you're reading my review please do not stay In New Harmony Inn it's the worst hotel I have ever stayed in my life. Hotel devlok in manali where I stayed 2 nights was good. it's room and bathroom was good,good services and food was kind of ok. My overall trip with family was enjoyable and good. our stay in Shimla and seeing snow in Gulaba near soling valley, Manali. Seeing the beautiful scenery while traveling from Shimla to Kullu valley and Manali

      Overall good arrangements made by Anjana Thakur from Treasure Of Himalayan. Hotels were average. Driver was excellent with his service. I would recommend Treasure Of Himalayan for your booking specially with Anjana as she always responds immediately and guide you. Kufri snowfall and candle light dinner.

      First of all thanks to Chand for being patient with me and my requests. Since it was my first solo trip I had a lot of doubts and questions about safety and stuff. The travel agents Akash and Chand made sure to check up on me everyday and if I was comfortable. Monu bhaiya, the driver made me feel very comfortable. He would talk about the places we were traveling to and sometimes if I wanted to take a detour he was very accommodating with that too. Overall I was very happy and will go for the mountain people again if I plan another trip in the north east. So I had a camp stay for a night in billing at the mountain top and was supposed to paraglide from there the next morning. To my surprise, I was the only girl in the whole mountains. There were groups of guys but no girl. However, I met a group of three guys and we got along so well. They took care of me and were very prot of me since I was the only girl. And the next day we flew together and ended up traveling for a short distance from bir after which we sadly had to part ways. But I made very good friends that day and will never forget that day.

      We have faced problem with cab driver. He was not given proper service. Our flight timing was on 12: 30 am on 14th and he dropped us on airport on 6pm on 13th april. We have to wait 6hr 30 min on airport for same thing He was picked up on 4:30 am. Also dropped on wrong airport terminal. He was not listening things like start AC, stop car for lunch break. Our trip was awesome except cab driver experience. Hotels and hotel service was awesome.
