If you are boarding bus at 7'O clock from ISBT Kashmere gate, Delhi to Dharamshala then you will be reaching Dharamshala in 11.30 hours.

Left from delhi at 7pm, and it was raining!

And in the morning I reached to the last stop, and didn't knew what to do, and I did not even wanted to check-in instead I chose the option to explore some place. After talking to one local she suggested me to visit 'Gyuto tantrik' monastery which is 9-10 KMS away from main bus stand!
You can take a bus going towards Palampur and ask to drop you infront of the monastery!

Can you spot the monk?

As soon as I entered, there is residency and Institute and then the temple. Morning was very calm and one can hear prayers!
Toilets are good enough to get freshen up.
After getting freshen up I headed to the temple and sat there for meditation; after travel that was one thing I needed.

Entry to the temple! Take permissions before you do anything. And maintain the vibe. Follow instructions!

Even if you are visiting be sure that it's their home and Institute!
