Founded in 1959, the Gyuto monastery preserves the Tantric tradition of Buddhism in India. Many aspiring students visit the place in the hope of learning the so-called black magic developed under the lineage of the great teacher Tsongkhapa. Tourists find the destination one of the best places to visit in Dharamshala not only for the panoramic beauty of the surroundings but for its quiet and meditative atmosphere. Constructed on a hilltop, the monastery has the best view of the Dhauladhar Ranges and the Beas river. If not for these exquisite sights, tourists are attracted by the gold plated statue of Lord Buddha. Thus the place is worth a visit for art lovers too.
