Travel Diaries - #The Buddhist Temples and Monasteries in Dharamshala, India
This was a short 3 days trip to one of the hill station in India, place named Dharamshala for medical purpose but we also took this opportunity to spend some quality family time and visiting the place.
Dharamshala is a place where His Holiness Dalai Lama resides. This place has quite a few Buddhist Temples and Monasteries and you see a lot of Tibetan culture followed here. There is also a very big Library which holds thousands of Tibetan manuscripts.
We visited a couple of Temples and I must say they are very magnetic. The works at each temple is so minutely detailed out and intricately done that you really wonder the capabilities of human art.
You can feel the energies of these places is so very high that you do not wish to come out of it.
You can sit and spend hours here feeling the tranquility of the place. In the 2 days that we spent in this place, most of our time we have spent in these Temples.
These Temples have so many idols and other images around and all of them have significance. It's a deep study and one or two days is not enough. In this much time you can only get the outer glimpses.
Let me give you a few glimpses of these Temples and you will agree with me that they are absolutely marvelous.
This is the first and the main temple where His Holiness Dalai Lama also resides. Besides the Buddha statue there are a lot of other statues also but I could not identify them. What I could make out was there were always 2 types of statues, one were very fierce types and the other had very calming looks, so I could interpret that it was something related to the Good vs the Evil.
I hope you all enjoyed watching these pictures
