On last 23rd August 2014, as a part of my Manali, Himachal Pradesh tour, I was at Buddhist Monastery at Manali, where I spent few hours and enjoyed the peace and architecture of the monastery.
The colourful Tibetan monastery is famous for its carpet-weaving unit where the residents, the immigrants from Tibet, produce handicrafts of various kinds that attract the tourists towards it. Tibetan Monastery is one of the oldest and famous places in Manali. Due to huge number of tibetan peoples settled in Kullu Manali Tibetan Monasteries has been set up. The main attraction of the monastery is the handicrafts of Tibetan artistry and the carpets that are woven and sold in the monastery. The Gadhan Thekchoking Gompa in Manali was constructed in the year 1969. The architecture of the monastery represents the Tibetan style of architecture designed with hued frescoes. The statue of the Lord Buddha presides in the monastery.
