Museums in McleodganjEdit This
Set in a visually stunning environment in the Dhauladhar mountain range, McLeod Ganj is both historically and spiritually significant. For this reason it is home to a variety of intriguing museums.
The Dalai Lama´s Temple is one of the most spiritually energizing
places on earth. It is filled with statues of important Buddhist
figures, Tibetan prayer flags and ¨mani¨ stones. Having a tranquil atmosphere and messages of peace, love, and happiness makes this a relaxing oasis. The museum is open
from sunrise to sunset everyday, and in the early hours of morning, you
are welcome to observe the monks meditating and chanting.
Another interesting place to visit is the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives.
The main museum of history in McLeod Ganj is the Tibet Museum. It is
part of the Tsuglagkhang Complex and features harsh reminders of the
Chinese occupation of Tibet, and the exodus of Tibetans. It is a
multimedia museum displaying videos and photos. The Tibet Museum is
open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. Admission is Rs. 5.
The Gu Chu Sum Monement Gallery covers the same topic as the Tibet Museum. Former political prisoners were involved in the formation of this gallery that displays countless photographs leading you through the political oppression the people of Tibet had to suffer through at the hands of the Chinese.
The natural beauty of McLeod Ganj is being polluted and destroyed,
little by little, due to disregard for the environment. For this
reason, the Tibetan Welfare Office decided to attack this issues head
on by creating the Environmental Educational Center, which is both
interesting and informative and helps people understand why it is important to take better care their
