If one talks about what are 5 major things to see in Dharamsala -Dalai Lama Temple tops the list. The temple is situated along with Namgyal Monastery and is home to many monks. The temple is a huge tourist attraction and people come with a misconception that they'd see His Holiness the Dalai Lama seated, but that is not the case. One can meet His Holiness with proper appointment, if he is available but the temple is a Buddhist temple which is a truly holy place in itself.
Dalai Lama Temple Complex is nearby to Mecloadganj circle, Kora walk in the jungle around the temple complex is a real soothing experience.
This premier attraction and pilgrim site in McleodGanj is the official home of the 14th Dalai Lama. It is called Tsuglag Khang(does not roll of the tongue easily, does it?)
