The hill station of Dharamsala's reputation stems from its large community of exiled Tibetan Buddhists, including the Dalai Lama.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Jawalamukhi Devi Temple and Bhagsunath Temple. Family-friendly places like Baijnath Temple and Sobha Singh Art Gallery will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dharamsala: Kangra (Kangra Fort & Mata Brajeshwari Devi) and Jawali Ji Temple (in Jwalamukhi). There's much more to do: explore and take pictures at Norbulingka Institute, explore the activities along Dal Lake, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kalachakra Temple, and take in the awesome beauty at Triund Hill.
