Gyuto Monastery, Dharamsala
A notable institution of the Gelug Order, Gyuto Monastery serves as the center of learning for Tantric rituals, Tantric meditation, and Buddhist philosophy. Founded in 1474 by Jetsun Kunga Dhondup, a disciple of the first Dalai Lama, the monastery complex provides a home for over 500 practicing monks maintaining Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The buildings glow bold yellow, and stand in marvelous contrast to the backdrop of snow-capped mountains. Plan my trip to Dharamsala with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Beautiful and calm place. Temple is clean and people are very disciplined. It has a nice view of the Himalayan range from the top.
Nice place for meditation. The prayer hall was nice and have some good energy. The view in the back was just amazing. Mountains with covered snow looks beautiful.
