Dharamsala, fondly referred to as "Scotland of India", is a charming hill station in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. A place of global interest, especially for Buddhist, it's Dalai Lama's Indian Headquarters with a sizeable Tibetan settlement. Tourists come here for its snowline, myriad streams, charming mountains, attractive surroundings, colourful temple and Gompas. In a nutshell, this charming valley has everything to delight tourists of all hues and cries.
Dharamshala is known to retain the British flavour and colonial lifestyle, which adds to its charm. McLeod Ganj, carrying Tibetan influence, has monks and the Namgyal Monastery. The church of St. John, many ancient temples- Jwalamukhi Temple, Brijeshwari Temple and Chamunda Temple- and the Kangra museum attract tourists here in large numbers.
Dharamshala is a hub of natural charm, religious spirits and historical essences, thus remains a big tourists spot. Some places of tourists interest include Kareri Lake, Dharamkot, Machhrial and Tatwani, Dal Lake, War Memorial etc. Exploring the nearby mountains and feeling the pulse of a small town with simple people is the major attraction here.
