This place is a must visit while in Dharamshala. It is lovely and beautifully maintained. It is absolutely clean and green. The doll museum is marvellous. The other workshops are also worth a watch. The posh restaurant serves excellent Tibetan cuisine. Though it is slightly steep but worth the money. The waiters are very cooperative and cordial. Tbere is a small coffee shop also. The place is very scenic with a small stream flowing and walls painted artistically . Overall a lovely place to visit. There are also plenty of eating joints outside the institute. Parking space is a little problem here.
Nice place to see, sit and relax. Good cafe inside where I ate yummy chocolate truffle cake, Afghan cookies and masala tea. In the entrance one can find informative information on the walls regarding life's mysteries. Fishes in the clean tank are good delight for nature watchers.
