After the much needed peace and quiet we got back in the cab and made our way to the "Norbulingka Institute", but before we entered we made a quick stop at a nearby Tibetan restaurant down the road called "Taste of Tibet" which had good music and even better momos. ????
8. Norbulingka Cafe, Dharamshala
A must visit place if you want to experience the life of a monk. They have workshops for the arts and crafts created in the monsatery
The monastery and institute take you away from the city into a calm, peaceful and serene environment. The fish ponds, flowing water and surrounding trees add to the view. There's a Doll Museum, a souvenir shop, a Cafe and a guest house.I visited this place on a Sunday, when the workshops were closed but the person on the ticket counter never informed me. In some way I feel cheated after paying the entrance fee and not being able to see the workshops.
This institute display rich Art Culture and handicraft of Tibet from Paintings, wood carving, metal work, patch work and huge Buddha Museum.Calm and peaceful, wonderful well maintained gardens.It has a beautiful serene coffee house in mid of the garden.
